So I get this message in my logs when I try to start mt-daapd (svn-1586):

Error opening db: No backend database support for type: sqlite

I have sqlite 3.5.3 installed. I’m also using a 64-bit machine. I used –enable-sqlite3 and even specified the appropriate directories: –with-sqlite3-includes=/usr/include –with-sqlite3-libs=/usr/lib64

What is the problem? Has anyone encountered this before?

TIA.

You probably need to set your database in your config file

#
# db_type/db_parms
#
# This specifies what kind of database you want, and where
# it should be kept. Valid db_types depend on what databases are
# compiled in, but can include "sqlite" and "sqlite3".
#
# db_parms is the parameters for that database backend. For sqlite and
# sqlite3, these parameters are the path to the database.
#

db_type = sqlite3

You can either edit the file directly or change in the web interface.

You have sqlite in your config which is sqlite2.
