can we use sqlite instead of mysql?

I am facing problem in creating the database using mysql ! can I continue Active Record Basics using sqlite as database?

ActiveRecord does support SQLite as well.

Yes! (I am not really good, but I am trying to answer you!) In your config/database.yml

change your code to the code below.

# SQLite version 3.x
#   gem install sqlite3
#   Ensure the SQLite 3 gem is defined in your Gemfile
#   gem 'sqlite3'
default: &default
  adapter: sqlite3
  pool: 5
  timeout: 5000

  <<: *default
  database: db/development.sqlite3

# Warning: The database defined as "test" will be erased and
# re-generated from your development database when you run "rake".
# Do not set this db to the same as development or production.
  <<: *default
  database: db/test.sqlite3

  <<: *default
  database: db/production.sqlite3
