How To Install and Use SQLite on Ubuntu!

Created September 13, 2021

What is SQLite?

SQLite is a free, cross-platform database management system. It is popular for its efficiency and ability to interface with many different programming languages.


To install the SQLite command-line interface on Ubuntu, first update your package list:

sudo apt update

Now install SQLite:

sudo apt install sqlite3

To verify the installation, check the software’s version:

sqlite3 --version

You will receive an output like this:

3.31.1 2020-01-27 19:55:54 3bfa9cc97da10598521b342961df8f5f68c7388fa117345eeb516eaa837balt1

The output may vary if SQLite3 updates. But while writing this is the current version.

With SQLite installed, you are now ready to create a new database.

I may create a tutorial on SQLite in the near future.

That’s it, you have successfully installed SQLite on your Ubuntu Server and you can start using it!
