Hello I would like to create a simple application using sqlite. I am starting from scratch and I hope that it is stable enough for soon production.

I am in my first day and I used to code with CI3 but I wanted to learn CI4.

I install CI4 and see the defaut welcome page

Then I create a Test.php controler to test the database. My goal is to read, update and delete row of a table.

First test with mysql is ok I can read my data

I add this

       $db = db_connect();
       $strsql = "select * from aaa";
       $query = $db->query($strsql);

       $results = $query->getResult();

        foreach ($results as $row)
               echo '<br/>'.$row->uscode;

Now with sqlite I have this
1. Database.php
    public $default = [
        'DSN'      => '',
        'hostname' => '',
        'username' => '',
        'password' => '',
        'database' => APPPATH . 'Database/db1.db',
//      'DBDriver' => 'MySQLi',
        'DBDriver' => 'sqlite3',
        'DBPrefix' => '',
        'pConnect' => false,
        'DBDebug'  => (ENVIRONMENT !== 'production'),
        'cacheOn'  => false,
        'cacheDir' => '',
        'charset'  => 'utf8',
        'DBCollat' => 'utf8_general_ci',
        'swapPre'  => '',
        'encrypt'  => false,
        'compress' => false,
        'strictOn' => false,
        'failover' => [],
        'port'     => 3306,

I have db1.db that I put in  app/Database directory
 I have an error.  I notice that the linethat gave me the error is

       $db = db_connect();

What is wrong what did I miss?
In the documentation I didn't see anything with sqlite configuration.
I hope my question is clear because this forum put color in my text. I hope you understand. How to configure slqite after 3 days I didn't find
Your capitalization is off with driver name, try SQLite3 (capitalization counts).

And ensure your file actually exists at APPPATH . 'Database/db1.db'. Otherwise it should work, though most of the time I use with an in-memory database for testing purposes, so I'm not 100% up on SQLite usage, but that should be good.
Thank you very much. It works. "SQLite3"
I have an other question. Where do you suggest to place the database. I put it in App/Database

But maybe it is not a good decision. I have to consider the maintenance, saving the database, installation etc..? Database is data and App/Database is not a directory to store data. What is your idea ?
The writable folder could be a good place ... writable/database
I'm using also SQLite for some projects, and the "writable" folder is for sure the obvious spot for the database.

 i'm tightening up security  even on localhost in anticipation of hardening live. Mine was in public ; i also moved it to writeable .

so line i am using for Database.php in Config that works is :

'database' => ROOTPATH.'writable/Art',

where Art is a Sqlite database
