I've found something that is very significant. Just for a test, I
copied the php.ini to the C:\PHP folder and now I have an Interbase
section in the phpinfo() stuff. I suspect that the Apache service
doesn't have rights in the C:\Windows folder for whatever reason. Is
there any problem with having the php.ini file in C:\PHP permenantly?

Also, what is the default dialect? All of my databases are dialect 3.
