For PHP4 - I'm not sure anybody using Firebird has checked that out in a long
while. Personally I never even used PHP4 ;)
But it does sound as if the library paths are probably not correct. It could
simply be that it is not actually seeing the Firebird client, and you will
need the older ( I think ) client for older builds of PHP.
