What is phpLiteAdmin?
phpLiteAdmin is a web-based SQLite database admin tool written in PHP with support for SQLite3 and SQLite2. Following in the spirit of the flat-file system used by SQLite, phpLiteAdmin consists of a single source file, phpliteadmin.php, that is dropped into a directory on a server and then visited in a browser. There is no installation required. The available operations, feature set, interface, and user experience is comparable to that of phpMyAdmin.

$directoryvariable and skip to step 4.
If you want to specify your databases manually, set the value of the
$directoryvariable as false and modify the
$databasesarray to hold the databases you would like to manage.
The path field is the file path of the database relative to where

phpliteadmin.phpis located at "databases/manager/phpliteadmin.php" and you want to manage "databases/yourdatabase.sqlite", the path value would be "../yourdatabase.sqlite".
The name field is the human-friendly way of referencing the database within the application. It can be anything you want.
