Opening SQLITE files

Have a problem opening a .SQLITE file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what SQLITE files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .SQLITE file type?

The .sqlite filename extension is usually appended to files that contain SQLite databases. SQLite is a public-domain serverless relational database management system (DBMS) for multiple platforms, used in both embedded and standalone ways.

The SQLite database engine is being actively developed by the SQLite Consortium, and 'sqlite3' engine libraries are available for all major platforms. Embedded SQLite databases can be found in a large number of popular software products.

A single .sqlite file contains an SQLite database with all user data, including tables, indexes and definitions stored as table data. SQLite databases accept multiple data types and are SQL-compliant.

An SQLite database cannot be simply opened like a document file, it must instead be accessed with an SQLite client application via the SQLite engine library (sqlite3), without the need for a database server.

Instead of .sqlite, SQLite database files can often have the .db extension.
