sqlite3 for wordpress

running wordpress with sqlite is quick, easy, and can be much less system administration load as it eliminates the need for a separate database process running.

this site is currently running with sqlite using aaemnnosttv’s drop-in.

set it up

  • download https://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz
  • extract it into your webroot (something like /var/www)
  • download db.php and add it to /var/www/yoursite/wp-content/
  • follow the normal setup instructions but skip the database fields
  • profit????
