Summary0010573: support SQLite

For small systems it would be nice to have a database backend that does not need any installation.

Please support SQLite for that purpose.

TagsNo tags attached.

Sounds like a good idea. Anyone willing to provide a patch for this?

I'd be interested too. An Actual DBMS is a bit overkill for that purpose.
Is mantis running PDO ? If no database specific functions are used it should be fairly simple to enable a PDO driver.

At the moment our API relies on ADOdb for DB abstraction.

There was a plan to switch to a new DB API based on PDO, but the developer who led that effort has left the team, so at this time I don't know if and when that switch will actually happen.

That being said, ADOdb does offer SQLite drivers, so in theory it should be feasible to implement that.

Should you decide to implement it, feel free to submit a pull request on Github.

Great, looking forward to your contribution !

Note, if and when you get around to it, please make sure to base your changes on our 'master' branch (i.e. not 1.2.x).

You may want to see the patch submitted at 0019350 to add Sqlite support for 1.2.x and 1.3.x.
