Can I use SQLite databases?

SQLite is supported, but works a bit differently than other databases

SQLite databases are a file on disk instead of a database server like PostgreSQL and MySQL.

⚠️ Since SQLite is a file, it will only work with a single server.

To use SQLite with your Hatchbox applications, you will need to tell your application to store the SQLite database in a shared location.

You can specify this with the DATABASE_URL env var:
Or in your database.yml:
Change "myapp" to the name of your application.
