If you choose FreeBSD(another open-source unix) instead of Linux, here's the
complete walkthrough:

su to root
cd /usr/ports/databases/firebird-server (install Firebird)
make install
cd /usr/ports/www/apache13_modssl (you can install any apache you
make install
cd /usr/ports/www/mod_php5 (install the latest php5)
make install
cd /usr/ports/databases/php5_interbase (and the connector between php5
and firebird)
make install

Done. Too easy!
