ok , also, have you used the SQLite Module yet..
it uses a "absalute path" to the database & NOT relative to the CMS Root, is there a way to make it update the path automatically OR set a relative path .



it possible to make it retive : ( assests/.db/ss_databse ) so i dot have to reinstall the website every time i move it around. ( the reason i use SQLite is so i don't need to set it up !! )

so , what is considered a "too big" databse for SQLite , i like it ,its easy to run, portable & the job for most of my "small" projects/jobs.

did you have any problems with SQlite 3 in the past, something you can warn me about?

(sorry for the too many questions, i am sure this page will answer a lot of question for newbies to come :)
Thank you

hundreds of megabytes... but I am sure sqlite3 will be just fine for a small site. I've used it before for mobile projects and it's extremely reliable - I think it's like the most deployed open source db ever.
