+=== Easy Option: SQLite ===
 Installing Apache Bloodhound with SQLite is the easiest option as Python comes with SQLite
integrated into it. In addition, there are no special access rights required to create or
interact with an SQLite database as it is stored in a local file. For larger production installations,
SQLite may not be considered appropriate and lacks the possible advantage of using a separate
server for the database.
+=== Recommended Option: PostgreSQL ===
 Installing with PostgreSQL is complicated by having to create users and a database on the
server and adjusting permissions to allow access. It also adds the following dependencies:
