Hello and sorry for the light offtopic, but can't find useful answers.
Firstly, the decision of use windows server and php 5.6 (with wampserver) is
not mine, I must use them. As Unix developer windows is harsh to me.
Current PHP5.6.32 (26 Oct 2017) has sqlite 3.8 version, but I want to use JSON
and FTS5 extensions. Almost all answers I get on other sources are, "don't use
sqlite3, use this 'other cool technology (TM)' ". The only valid answer I found
is recompile PHP with last sqlite3 version, using VC11 compiler (others won't
I tried to compile with VS2015 but the dll don't work with PHP5.6 (php5.6
doesn't detect/show sqlite3 in phpinfo). The dll works with other apps dynamic
linking to it.
> Thanks Simon. It seems that php 5.6 it's EOL and all updates (except security) are on 7.1 and 7.2 branchs.
> See the answers I get from php staff, 7.2 will have 3.21 version plus FTS and JSON extensions on (If I understand correctly)
Oh good grief yes. If you’re still using PHP 5 please upgrade to PHP 7 unless you have compatibility problems. So many bugs fixed, so much better security.
Which version of SQLite you get with it depends on your source and platform, but you can cross that bridge when you come to it.
