Hi Dale,

The latest mojoPortal from our svn trunk repository is pre-configured
to use SQLite in MonoDevelop using mojoportal.mds solution.
I changed the default db configuration from pgsql recently just
because its zero configuration, we inlcude a sqlite database and it
just works.
You can produce a package and deploy it to production including the
pre-populated SQLite database.
However, whether you would use SQLite for a production site/app
depends a lot on the app and how many users it will have. SQLite is
very fast but there is only 1 connection whereas pgsql and others have
a connection pool. So if the site/app gets a lot of traffic it
probably won't stand up well because each request is taking turns with
the one connection. So it can work well for a few users but it does
not scale real well to heavy web traffic.

Hope it helps,
