Dear All,
has anyone managed to install silverstripe with sqlite?
I followed the instructions on the sqlite ( on a fresh install. New install on Windows Vista using WAMP, test installation with default silverstripe and MySQL works
Now trying sqlite ...

Option 1: Installer
- installed silverstripe 2.3.7
- installed sqlite module latest trunk
- run http://localhost/test/install.php
-> there is no way to "choose sqlite from list of DB adapters"
-> MySQL is the db, no choice

- downloaded sqlite3-trunk-r102974.tar.gz and copied into folder sqlite on top level
- modifed _config.php
- run http://localhost/test/dev/build
->Fatal error: Class 'SS_Database' not found in C:\opt\wamp\www\test\sqlite3\code\SQLite3Database.php on line 8

after Option 2 activities, the CMS was not working anymore, even after removing the changes in _config.php

I think, there is no use in trying Option 3 ...

If anyone has managed to get silverstripe to run with sqlite, I would like to know how to do an installation on a blank environment as for the moment it doesn't look like it is working from scratch

Ciao, Mathias

Any of the database abstraction stuff requires 2.4.

you only read what you want to read.... although it is the first topic on the requirements list, I overlooked it.

I installed the rc1 of version 2.4 and it worked flawlessly.

Thanks for the quick reply!
