Well PHP4 is no longer supported, Apache 1 is a little long in the
tooth, and FB2.1 has been out for a while ....
Although I did think that the current FB1.5.6 provided a correct install
for support of the legacy stuff? But it would depend on where you are
picking the client up from, the one *IN* PHP4 would probably have the
problem you are seeing, and so needs to be removed so that the one
provided by FB1.5.6 is actually used.

A further point ... many of the features of the php_interbase.dll were
not implemented until PHP5 so some aspects of FB1.5 may not work as
expected with PHP4!
