For IPv6 we changed plugin to use , instead of : for the port separator. So please use , to separate port from IP or host.

For Firebird, if you connect to a database and you have 32/64bit mismatch, you get error number 3.

See Option() for various options you can set before connecting.
e.g. c.Option("SQLiteVFSFlags") = "1" for SQLite for read only access.

SQLConnectionMBS.SQLiteBackupFinish(Backup as SQLite3BackupMBS) as integer
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method SQL MBS SQL Plugin 19.5 Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Function: Finishes a backup run.
Notes:
When BackupStep has returned kErrorDone, or when the application wishes to abandon the backup operation, the application should destroy the SQLite3BackupMBS by passing it to BackupFinish. The BackupFinish interfaces releases all resources associated with the SQLite3BackupMBS object. If BackupStep has not yet returned kErrorDone, then any active write-transaction on the destination database is rolled back. The SQLite3BackupMBS object is invalid and may not be used following a call to BackupFinish.
The value returned by BackupFinish is kErrorOK if no BackupStep errors occurred, regardless or whether or not BackupStep completed. If an out-of-memory condition or IO error occurred during any prior BackupStep call on the same SQLite3BackupMBS object, then BackupFinish returns the corresponding error code.
A return of kErrorBusy or kErrorLocked from BackupStep is not a permanent error and does not affect the return value of BackupFinish.

SQLConnectionMBS.SQLiteBackupInit(Dest as Variant, DestName as String, Source as Variant, SourceName as String) as SQLite3BackupMBS
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method SQL MBS SQL Plugin 19.5 Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Function: Initializes a backup.
Notes:
The backup API copies the content of one database into another. It is useful either for creating backups of databases or for copying in-memory databases to or from persistent files.

see also
http://www.sqlite.org/c3ref/backup_finish.html

Exclusive access is required to the destination database for the duration of the operation. However the source database is only read-locked while it is actually being read; it is not locked continuously for the entire backup operation. Thus, the backup may be performed on a live source database without preventing other users from reading or writing to the source database while the backup is underway.

To perform a backup operation:
  • BackupInit is called once to initialize the backup,
  • BackupStep is called one or more times to transfer the data between the two databases, and finally
  • BackupFinish is called to release all resources associated with the backup operation.
There should be exactly one call to BackupFinish for each successful call to BackupInit.

The D and N arguments to BackupInit(D,N,S,M) are the database connection associated with the destination database and the database name, respectively. The database name is "main" for the main database, "temp" for the temporary database, or the name specified after the AS keyword in an ATTACH statement for an attached database. The S and M arguments passed to BackupInit(D,N,S,M) identify the database connection and database name of the source database, respectively. The source and destination database connections (parameters S and D) must be different or else BackupInit(D,N,S,M) will file with an error.
If an error occurs within BackupInit(D,N,S,M), then nil is returned and an error code and error message are store3d in the destination database connection D. The error code and message for the failed call to BackupInit can be retrieved using the ErrCode and ErrMessage functions. A successful call to BackupInit returns a SQLite3BackupMBS object. The SQLite3BackupMBS object may be used with the BackupStep and BackupFinish functions to perform the specified backup operation.

Concurrent Usage of Database Handles
The source database connection may be used by the application for other purposes while a backup operation is underway or being initialized. If SQLite is compiled and configured to support threadsafe database connections, then the source database connection may be used concurrently from within other threads.
However, the application must guarantee that the destination database connection is not passed to any other API (by any thread) after BackupInit is called and before the corresponding call to BackupFinish. SQLite does not currently check to see if the application incorrectly accesses the destination database connection and so no error code is reported, but the operations may malfunction nevertheless. Use of the destination database connection while a backup is in progress might also also cause a mutex deadlock.
If running in shared cache mode, the application must guarantee that the shared cache used by the destination database is not accessed while the backup is running. In practice this means that the application must guarantee that the disk file being backed up to is not accessed by any connection within the process, not just the specific connection that was passed to BackupInit.
The SQLite3BackupMBS object itself is partially threadsafe. Multiple threads may safely make multiple concurrent calls to BackupStep. However, the BackupRemaining and BackupPageCount APIs are not strictly speaking threadsafe. If they are invoked at the same time as another thread is invoking BackupStep it is possible that they return invalid values.

Source and Dest can be SQLConnectionMBS or SQLDatabaseMBS. You need to pass source and dest, even if one is self as we give you the option to decide where to pass the current database connection.

SQLConnectionMBS.SQLiteBackupPageCount(Backup as SQLite3BackupMBS) as integer
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method SQL MBS SQL Plugin 19.5 Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Function: Returns the number of pages in total.
Notes:
Each call to BackupStep sets two values inside the SQLite3BackupMBS object: the number of pages still to be backed up and the total number of pages in the source databae file. The BackupRemaining and BackupPageCount interfaces retrieve these two values, respectively.
The values returned by these functions are only updated by BackupStep. If the source database is modified during a backup operation, then the values are not updated to account for any extra pages that need to be updated or the size of the source database file changing.

SQLConnectionMBS.SQLiteBackupStep(Backup as SQLite3BackupMBS, Pages as Integer) as integer
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method SQL MBS SQL Plugin 19.5 Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Function: Copies up to Pages pages between the source and destination databases specified by SQLite3BackupMBS object.
Notes:
If N is negative, all remaining source pages are copied. If BackupStep(B,N) successfully copies N pages and there are still more pages to be copied, then the function resturns kErrorOK. If BackupStep(B,N) successfully finishes copying all pages from source to destination, then it returns kErrorDone. If an error occurs while running BackupStep(B,N), then an error code is returned. As well as kErrorOK and kErrorDone, a call to BackupStep may return kErrorReadOnly, kErrorNoMem, kErrorBusy, kErrorLocked, or an kErrorIOACCESS | kErrorIOXXX extended error code.
The BackupStep might return kErrorReadOnly if the destination database was opened read-only or if the destination is an in-memory database with a different page size from the source database.
If BackupStep cannot obtain a required file-system lock, then the sqlite3_busy_handler | busy-handler function is invoked (if one is specified). If the busy-handler returns non-zero before the lock is available, then kErrorBusy is returned to the caller. In this case the call to BackupStep can be retried later. If the source database connection is being used to write to the source database when BackupStep is called, then kErrorLocked is returned immediately. Again, in this case the call to BackupStep can be retried later on. (If kErrorIOACCESS | kErrorIOXXX, kErrorNoMem, or kErrorReadOnly is returned, then there is no point in retrying the call to BackupStep. These errors are considered fatal.) The application must accept that the backup operation has failed and pass the backup operation handle to the BackupFinish to release associated resources.
The first call to BackupStep obtains an exclusive lock on the destination file. The exclusive lock is not released until either BackupFinish is called or the backup operation is complete and BackupStep returns kErrorDone. Every call to BackupStep obtains a shared lock on the source database that lasts for the duration of the BackupStep call. Because the source database is not locked between calls to BackupStep, the source database may be modified mid-way through the backup process. If the source database is modified by an external process or via a database connection other than the one being used by the backup operation, then the backup will be automatically restarted by the next call to BackupStep. If the source database is modified by the using the same database connection as is used by the backup operation, then the backup database is automatically updated at the same time.

SQLConnectionMBS.SQLiteLastInsertRowID as Int64
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method SQL MBS SQL Plugin 19.5 Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Function: Returns Last Insert Rowid.
Notes:
Each entry in an SQLite table has a unique 64-bit signed integer key called the ROWID. The rowid is always available as an undeclared column named ROWID, OID, or _ROWID_ as long as those names are not also used by explicitly declared columns. If the table has a column of type INTEGER PRIMARY KEY then that column is another alias for the rowid.

This routine returns the rowid of the most recent successful INSERT into the database from the database connection in the first argument. If no successful INSERTs have ever occurred on that database connection, zero is returned.

(If an INSERT occurs within a trigger, then the rowid of the inserted row is returned by this routine as long as the trigger is running. But once the trigger terminates, the value returned by this routine reverts to the last value inserted before the trigger fired.)

An INSERT that fails due to a constraint violation is not a successful INSERT and does not change the value returned by this routine. ^Thus INSERT OR FAIL, INSERT OR IGNORE, INSERT OR ROLLBACK, and INSERT OR ABORT make no changes to the return value of this routine when their insertion fails. ^(When INSERT OR REPLACE encounters a constraint violation, it does not fail. The INSERT continues to completion after deleting rows that caused the constraint problem so INSERT OR REPLACE will always change the return value of this interface.)^

For the purposes of this routine, an INSERT is considered to be successful even if it is subsequently rolled back.

This function is accessible to SQL statements via the last_insert_rowid() SQL function.

If a separate thread performs a new INSERT on the same database connection while the LastInsertRowID function is running and thus changes the last insert rowid, then the value returned by LastInsertRowID is unpredictable and might not equal either the old or the new last insert rowid.
