    Since PHP 5.0 this extension was bundled with PHP.
    Beginning with PHP 5.4, this extension is available only via

    Windows users must enable php_sqlite.dll inside of php.ini in order to use these functions. A
    DLL for this
    PECL extension
    is currently unavailable. See also the building on Windows section.

    Windows builds must also enable PDO because as of
    PHP 5.1.0 it depends on it. So, php.ini
    will end up with something like this:


    On Linux or Unix operating systems, if you build PDO as a shared
    extension, you must build SQLite as a shared extension using the
    –with-sqlite=shared configure

    The PHP 5.0.x series of Windows builds enabled this
    extension by default, where no DLL file is necessary.

    SQLite 3 is supported through PDO SQLite.

    Note: Windows installation
    for unprivileged accounts

    On Windows operating systems, unprivileged accounts
    don’t have the TMP environment variable set by default. This
    will make sqlite create temporary files in the windows directory,
    which is not desirable. So, you should set the TMP environment variable
    for the web server or the user account the web server is running
    under. If Apache is your web server, you can accomplish this via a
    SetEnv directive in your
    httpd.conf file. For example:

    SetEnv TMP c:/temp

    If you are unable to establish this setting at the server level,
    you can implement the setting in your script:


    The setting must refer to a directory that the web server has
    permission to create files in and subsequently write to and delete
    the files it created. Otherwise, you may receive the following
    error message: malformed database
    schema – unable to open a temporary database file for storing
    temporary tables
