Sqlite3 Install Trouble

I'm trying to get the SilverStripe installer working with an Sqlite3 backend. I'm currently using the Sqlite3 module master build .tar.gz as I couldn't get the release version to work so I thought the newer version might help but I'm seeing the same thing.

I'm reasonably proficient setting up these types of things but I just don't know what the database error message is supposed to be telling me. I've messed around with directory permissions but nothing seems to help. I assumed it was telling me that the support for sqlite3 in php wasn't there but phpinfo() looks alright to me.

See attached pics. Can someone point me in the right direction?

What version of PHP are you running? I know the SQLite engine uses either PDO_SQLite OR SQLite3 to create the connection depending on some settings (like PHP version).

Or it is possible that the installer is reporting an error when it actually works (could be checking mysql or something) can you click the install button and see what the result is?
