WordPress4SQLite – alpha one

  1. Nice work, this will rock my NSLU2 with thttpd and sqlite!

    I tried, but i got an error:
    Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL which is required for WordPress.

    Something i’m missing out?

  2. I am getting the same error as b-ill

    “Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL which is required for WordPress.”

    maybe a new post on this could help 🙂

  3. Hi, I am sorry I didnt comment out a MySQLI check in default wordpress code. That code just check if mysql extension is loaded or not. To solve this problem you can open wp-settings.php in the root directory and go directly to Line # 49 and Line # 50

    Now comment out those lines as shown below

    //if ( !extension_loaded(‘mysql’) )
    //die( ‘Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL which is required for WordPress.’ );

    Now Install. The problem will be solved. Thanks

  4. I did that 🙂
    It works now.. with the flaws you discribed..
    I’m sure you will fix that.. and then I’ll just patch it to my wordpress 🙂

    Was wondering though.. you made this custum wordpress, but wordpress updates reguarly.. is there a way to update this wordpress with the official release without messin’ it all up?

  5. Hi again,

    Ok, that comment out line #49 and #50 did help, but then a new problem came up

    This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can’t contact the database server at DB_HOST. This could mean your host’s database server is down.

    * Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
    * Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    * Are you sure that the database server is running?

    But SQlite is installed, and I use localhost. I’ve never worked with SQlite before, what is it that i’m missing out, thanks for all help.


  6. b-ill: try to use an absolute path in your wp-config.php

    for example “/var/www/db/wpdb.db” in stead of “wpdb”

  7. Hasin: sqlite_fetch_object in wp-includes/wp-db.php line #183 is an php5 onlly function. Is it intended to support only php5?

  8. Just a note on b-ill’s last comment. I found that I not only had to use an absolute path, but also had to create an empty database file first with ‘touch wpdb.db’.

  9. Any further development? I would love to see this run on LAMP. I can set up easily enough, but then I get “It doesn’t look like you’ve installed WP yet”.

  10. I installed your SQLite version on my WRTSL54GS router and it seems to work well so far. Haven’t put it through much testing yet, but looks great. Thanks for all the work. When you start getting close to finishing your port, could you create a set of diff files against the stock WordPress version so that we can continue to migrate your port forward as WordPress rolls out new versions?

    Once again great work. I was almost going to try a port myself and you beat me to it. See my installation here:



  11. Ok i have lighttpd running and php. I installed sqlite. But i dont know how to use it. Cansome body write a little tut for me. I run linux.


  12. Hi Hasin,
    No new post from you and your last comment is from August 23, 2006 so I think I’m save to assume you put your energy on other fields to good use.

    1. I’m interested to use WP + SQLite.
    2. My field is “Knowledgeflows in Development Aid”
    3. I run WP on XAMPP on a USB Stick as a private life diary (5 categories, many tags)
    4. I will hire a theme designer to adjust the 2813 theme to my sketched layout
    5. I like to pay to get WP 2.1.3 adjusted to SQLite
    (with the risk of not upgrading for the next year which is not a problem as the Blog/Wiki is not on the Internet. Sometimes on an Intranet)

    A. Is it right that you stopped working on WP + SQLite?
    B. Do you know who else is actively working on it ? (I researched all old threads, yours and fcicq are the latest activities I found)
    C. Any suggestion how I should proceed?

    Have a wonderful time with your children, bfh

  14. Hi, thanx for your works.

    I’m trying your WordPress4SQLite.
    However, whenever I try to log-in as admin, I just face “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.” error message.
    What should do I to solve this problem?
