How To Install SQLite on CentOS 8

Install SQLite on CentOS 8

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install SQLite on CentOS 8.  For those of you who didn’t know, SQLite is a lightweight command-line database application. It is one of the most efficient database engines in the world. In part, thanks to that made in C Language which makes it very efficient in managing the resources of the system.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you through the step by step installation of the SQLite on CentOS 8.

Install SQLite on CentOS 8

Step 1. First, let’s start by ensuring your system is up-to-date and install all required dependency.

sudo dnf install epel-release
sudo dnf update

Step 2. Installing SQLite on CentOS 8.

Run the following command to install SQLite on the CentOS system:

sudo dnf install sqlite

Once that’s complete, check the version, as of this writing, we installed 3.34.0:

$sqlite3 --version
SQLite version 3.34.0 2020-12-09 00:56:22

Step 3. Using SQLite on the CentOS system.

To enter the SQLite command console, simply type the SQLite command. There you create a temporary database to start the work:

sqlite3

The next step I recommend is to show the SQLite help to know which commands we can apply:

.help
