PHP + Firebird SQL Installation

Info.Tech, PHP, SQL: Structured Query Language, Web Development Add comments

Download the following: (In my case, it’s 64bit)

  1. PHP
  2. Apache
  3. Firebird (http://www.firebirdsql.org/en/firebird-2-5-2-upd1/)

After installation of PHP, edit the php.ini and uncomment:

  • php_interbase.dll
  • php_pdo_firebird.dll

At command prompt, cast php -v and you will have an error:

PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\php\ext\php_interbase.dll' - The specified module could not be found.
 in Unknown on line 0
PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\php\ext\php_pdo_firebird.dll' - The specified module could not be found.
 in Unknown on line 0

Install the Firebird…

Try again casting a command php -v

C:\Workspace\localhost\vshbdata>php -v
PHP 5.4.9 (cli) (built: Nov 21 2012 19:54:46)

Meaning, the firebird is successfully installed.

Second test is create a php script:

<?php

foreach(PDO::getAvailableDrivers() as $driver) {
  echo $driver.'<br />';
}

?>

You should see firebird in the list…
