Default Database structure used for VGMdb?

Hi there!
I was wondering what kind of database you are using for VGMdb. I'm collecting game music and I haven't found an easy way to archive the music in a database. Currently I'm just using a speadsheet which serves the main purpose but of yourse is extremely ugly.
Any suggestion on how to build my own database without too much trouble? Regarding databases: I've never worked with one but I'm a quick learner.
Thanks for your help!

I remember VGMdb uses LAMP (MySQL).

Probably the easiest way to build your own archive would be to learn Python and use an SQlite database, which is also included in Python. That's what I use for personal archive/database projects.

Since when is that the case? AFAIK SQLite is a C library, which implements a KISS SQL DB.
These are seperate projects. SQlite isn't even hosted on the Python project server. I think you're mixing something up here.

EDIT: Ah, you probably mean the pysqlite bindings? Didn't know that they're building and shipping this module now by default.

Yeah, it's in, as of 2.5.
