So I resume for all

Firebird 1.5 RC4 PHP 4.3.1 Mdk 9.1

Install the rpm (apache an php)

Get the PHP source from

untar it:
tar xvfz php-*.tar.gz

cd to the untared base dir:
cd php-4*

according to <>
add #define ISC_FAR in php_interbase.h
export LIBS="-lstdc++ -lcrypt"

compile it with ib support:
./configure --with-interbase=shared,/usr/local/firebird

(or make -i if you get errors before compiling
It's ok there to ignore errors because we only want

cp the module to /usr/lib/php/extensions

cp modules/ /usr/lib/php/extensions

Add the line :

to the /etc/php.ini file in the Dynamic Extensions section

Now it should work.
