Title: MySql to SqLite one question
Post by: Cola-Coca on May 15, 2014, 11:58:56 PM
Hi,

I have a base that is in MySQL and I was wondering if it is possible to convert MySql to SQLite? Is it true thet the database SqLite consumes fewer resources on the server ? Do you recommend this SqLite base to use that is a substitute for MySql ?

MySQL preferred format and no way to convert.

The thing is, most people use MySQL. Most MOD authors (myself included) only develop with MySQL in front.
While SMF has an abstraction layer for database support, it is possible that some things can cause problems with other engines.

I might add that some other forum softwares out there only explicitly support MySQL ;)
