Pragma page_size {
   <p>^(<b>PRAGMA DB.page_size;
       <br>PRAGMA DB.page_size = </b><i>bytes</i><b>;</b></p>
    <p>Query or set the page size of the database.)^ ^The page
    size must be a power of two between 512 and 65536 inclusive.
    </p>

    <p>^When a new database is created, SQLite assigned a page size to
    the database based on platform and filesystem.  For many years,
    the default page size was almost always 1024 bytes, but beginning
    with SQLite [version 3.12.0] ([dateof:3.12.0]), 
    the default page size increased
    to 4096.

    <p>^The page_size pragma will only set in the
    page size if it is issued before any other SQL statements that
    cause I/O against the database file.
    SQL statements that cause I/O against the database file include
    "CREATE", "SELECT", "BEGIN IMMEDIATE", and "PRAGMA journal_mode=WAL".
    ^(If the page_size pragma is
    used to specify a new page size just prior to
    running the [VACUUM] command and if the database is not in
    [WAL | WAL journal mode] then [VACUUM] will change the page
    size to the new value.)^</p>



    <p>^The [SQLITE_DEFAULT_PAGE_SIZE] compile-time option can be used
    to change the default page size assigned to new databases.

    The default page size is recommended for most applications.

    immediately.  Instead, the new page size is remembered and is used
    to set the page size when the database is first created, if it does


    not already exist when the page_size pragma is issued, or at the




    next [VACUUM] command that is run on the same database connection
    while not in [WAL mode].)^</p>
