You want to use SQLite as your database.
You know SQLite is a "server-less" database and don't want to bother with setting up a database server.
<?php return array( 'default' => 'sqlite', 'connections' => array( 'sqlite' => array( 'driver' => 'sqlite', 'database' => __DIR__.'/../database/production.sqlite', 'prefix' => '', ), ), ); ?>
You must have the PHP Driver installed. See Installing SQLite for setting up the PHP driver.
In the above configuration example, line #7 points to your database. You may want to change this to your
'database' => storage_path('production.sqlite'),
Or even create a folder within the storage directory.
$ mkdir app/storage/databases
Be sure to update your configuration to the new location.
'database' => storage_path('databases/production.sqlite'),
