If you’re using PHP 5.2.x on RHEL/CentoOS and you received error
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function sqlite_escape_string()
don’t worry. The reason for this is the missing sqlite extension which is not included in RHEL/Fedora/CentOS php packages by default.
To fix this issue, you can include it manually
wget http://museum.php.net/php5/php-5.2.XX.tar.gz tar xzvf php-5.2.XX.tar.gz cd php-5.2.XX/ext/sqlite/ phpize ./configure make make install echo extension=sqlite.so >> /etc/php.d/sqlite.ini service httpd restart
Replace XX with your PHP version (check the php version with “php -v”)
