Sqlite command line problem

Postby johnmcginnis » 25. March 2005 23:55

First kudos for the Xampp team. A very slick platform well executed.

To my problem:

I notice that the variant of Xampp I downloaded has support for SQLite. Yet if I attempt to run SQLite from commandline (@ /opt/lampp/bin/sqlite) it comes back with 'command not found'.

Now I have checked permissions (755) so they are ok. Even an attempt at root level comes back with the same error so I have ruled out group rights as the issue. Odd thing is the preinstlled PHP demo program that uses SQLite works fine :?

Anyone have a clue was the problem is of running SQLite at command line from the Xampp installation?

Thanks in advance.

Dear John!

Are you absolutely sure you call /opt/lampp/bin/sqlite and made no typo? If you are sure please call the following two commands. What do them output?

file /opt/lampp/bin/sqlite
ldd /opt/lampp/bin/sqlite

Many greetings

Re: Sqlite command line not launching

Hallo von Dallas!

Below is the output from your request. Does SQLite work? Yes. I had attempted the SQLite launch from /opt/lampp/bin the directory, not /opt/lampp/bin/sqlite. As you suggested works quite fine, which of course makes me feel like an idiot.

Will have to determine why the following does not work:

cd /opt/lampp/bin
bash: sqlite: command not found

Most likely I will just set up a BASH alias and leave it at that. but I do appreciate your help. (Now time for me to stand in a corner and have a Homer Simpson moment....)

cd /opt/lampp/bin
bash: sqlite: command not found

That's normal on *nix...

You must prepend a "./":
Code: Select all
cd /opt/lampp/bin/

(or add "." to your (search) PATH)
