Community site: login faq

I'm about to start work on a Python + SQLite3 web app to be hosted on Webfaction and would like to use a reasonably recent version of SQLite.

Right now, Webfaction has included the 3.5.9 version of the SQLite database in all of the Python releases it has made available. From an ssh session, use:
python3.3 -c "import sqlite3; print(sqlite3.sqlite_version)"

SQLite 3.5.9 is over 5 years old, released May, 2008. Any chance of rebuilding the Pythons with a newer version of the SQLite database? Maybe just python3.3 with SQLite 3.8? Or must I build my own private Python?

(Note: WF's PHP 5.4 has 3.7.7.1 of SQLite, released is June, 2011, which is better by 3+ years).

Send us a support ticket so we can try to isolate the reason there is a version difference on your server/account.

When I checked on one of our 64 bit servers the version was 3.6.20 for both python and the shell,

$ sqlite3 --version
3.6.20

$ python3.3
Python 3.3.2 (default, May 16 2013, 20:52:00) 
[GCC 4.4.7 20120313 (Red Hat 4.4.7-3)] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import sqlite3
>>> print(sqlite3.sqlite_version)
3.6.20

I have also created an internal tracking ticket for our System Administration team to investigate the possible upgrade to 3.8

Thanks for the speedy, thorough, and informed response. I never get this support elsewhere. Damn, I luv Webfaction!

I'm on Web244 (USA / CentOS 5 - 32bit) which might be older. FYI, as suggested, I have opened a support ticket to check this. Thanks!
