Feature request #11794
spatialite connection custom name
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||Yes||Resolution:||fixed/implemented|
|Easy fix?:||No||Copied to github as #:||20020|
now its' impossible to load two spatialite db with the same name beacause the connection name is the same of db name.
Is it possible to manage user custom connection names in the same way of postgis/wms?

I cannot reproduce: a spatialite DB is just a file, if you copy the file to another directory you can load it into QGIS wihout any problem.
Can you please explain what you mean?
Maybe provide a step by step procedure to reproduce it?

@elpaso I always found very strange this way of dealing with spatialite connections. Is there any good reason to give a "name" to a connection ? The name of the file should be sufficient, no ?
So if the connections are stored with the filename as the key, asking the user for a new name should not even be necessary.

I don't know why it was written like that in the first place. I've just added a small patch without rewriting the whole class.
My impression, given also #13747 and a couple of crashes I've experienced while testing with spatialite files is that the provider is not really in good shape.
