SQLite is a small, fast, embeddable database. What makes it popular is the combination of the database engine and interface into a single library as well as the ability to store all the data in a single file. Its functionality lies between MySQL and PostgreSQL, however it is faster than both databases.

A thorough, practical guide to using, administering, and programming the popular database that is bundled with PHP 5.

This means that SQLite will be used -- or at least tried out -- by the millions of developers that use PHP. There is some online documentation of SQLite, but it isn't organized in a useful fashion, it has large gaps, and it leans heavily on coding comments. ""It's small, fast and very low footprint,. . .I'm exceedingly pleased with SQLite. Since converting. . . to use it, performance and space efficiency have vastly improved over previous versions, and the ease-of-use (and ease-of-setup) perspective makes it tremendously more appropriate for embedded use in a tool of this sort than depending on a full-fledged out-of-process database server. In short: Try it. You'll like it."" -- Review on Freshmeat. Chris Newman is a consultant programmer specializing in database development with an Internet twist. He has extensive commercial experience of using PHP to integrate various database systems and has produced a wide range of applications for an international client base.
