Php – pdo sqlite could not find driver… php file not processing


Hi i'm received the could not find driver error when trying to connect to sqlite via a php file. I've set permission to 777… PHP Version 5.2.16, i have the module install. any reason why its not finding the driver, also php.ini is showing the extension and installed.


PDO support enabled
PDO drivers mysql


PDO Driver for MySQL, client library version 5.0.92

try {
    // Connect to the SQLite Database.
    $db = new PDO('sqlite:.subscribers.db');
} catch(Exception $e) {
    die('connection_unsuccessful: ' . $e->getMessage());

Best Solution

I had to actually install the extension, and this is how i did on Ubuntu 16 running PHP 7.1:

sudo apt install php7.1-sqlite3
