Ron D.: "I'm still very happy with SQLite Maestro and Data Wizard; makes my HTPC database much easier to manage".
Mario Figueiredo: "I can safely forget all I know about SQL when using SQLite Maestro. It is that easy and intuitive to use. It is also nicely drawn with an easy and appealing interface that makes the sometimes boring tasks of database maintenance and administration more endurable.
The decision to support the non-commercial use of your software with a lower price is absolutely worth mentioning. For that alone, I thank you. For everything else, I say keep up the good work".

Databases and Database Profiles

SQLite Maestro allows you to manipulate databases by means of database profiles. Profile contains database connection settings and a set of options to automatize common manipulations with databases (a possibility to connect to the database at SQLite Maestro startup, login prompt before connection, etc.). To start working with databases in SQLite Maestro, you should create database profile(s) first.

 

SQLite Maestro supports transparent database encryption. You can use either SQLite Encryption Extension by Hwaci (if you have it) or a free wxSQLite3 library, which is already included into the SQLite Maestro installation package. The libraries are compatible with each other by API calls, but a database encrypted using one library cannot be read by another one.

 

To apply the database file encryption, follow the Manage encryption... link on the database node's popup menu at the Explorer tree as shown below. The action is available only for disconnected databases.

 

 

By default wxSQLite3 library with 128 bit AES encryption will be used. To use the power of SQLite Encryption Extension by Hwaci or another encryption library compatible with it by API calls, disable encryption first, than copy the library to the installation folder as sqlite3.dll and change encryption key in the Manage encryption window and enable encryption back.
