SQLite Integration

SQLite Integration is the plugin that enables WordPress to use SQLite. If you want to build a WordPress website with it, this plugin is for you.

This plugin enables you to create WordPress based web sites without MySQL database server. All you've got to prepare is the Apache web server or the like and PHP with PDO extension. WordPress archive and this plugin in hand, you can build a WordPress web site out of the box.

SQLite Integration is a successor to PDO for WordPress plugin, which unfortunately enough, doesn't seem to be maintained any more. SQLite Integration uses the basic idea and structures of that plugin and adds some utilities with more features.


SQLite Integration is a database access engine program, which means it's not like the other plugins. It must be used to install WordPress. Please read the install section. And see more detailed instruction in the SQLite Integration Page.

Once you succeed in installing WordPress, you can use it just like the other systems using MySQL. Optionally, this plugin provides the feature to temporarily change the database to MySQL and come back to SQLite, which may help developers test their sites on the local machines without MySQL.

After you finish installing, you can activate this plugin (this is optional but I recommend you to). And you can see some instructions and useful information on your server or your installed plugins.

System Requirements

  • PHP 5.2 or newer with PDO extension (PHP 5.3 or newer is better).
  • PDO SQLite driver must be loaded.

Backward Compatibility

If you are using 'PDO for WordPress', you can migrate your database to this plugin. Please check the install section.

Notes about Support

WordPress.org doesn't officially support using any other database than MySQL. So you will have no supports from WordPress.org. Even if you post to the general Forum, you'll have few chances to get the answer. And if you use patched plugins, you will have no support from the plugin author(s), eithter. I will help you as much as I can, but take your own risk, please.
