Subject Re: R: [firebird-php] Php interbase extension not working
Author Sakhile Njoko
Phpinfo now reflects the correct php.ini in "C:\Program Files\PHP" and 'extension_dir = "C:\Program Files\PHP\ext"' is uncommented in php.ini. "C:\Program Files\PHP" is also included in the Windows Path (Environment Variables). Apache does not show that there is a problem recognising / loading php_interbase.dll.
Doing the exact setup on another server (64-bit) works smoothly. It is just this Windows Server 2003 (32-bit) that is a huge problem for me. For the record, Php works fine but it is firebird functions that are not working, meaning php_interbase.dll doesn't load but Apache doesn't reflect any error when it starts.

First step is to get interbase listed ...
phpinfo will tell you where it is reading the php.ini file from, and if it's a
copy that has php_interbase.dll enabled, then the next step is to check the
error log and see if it says why php_interbase.dll is not loading. As others
have said - it's usually that it can't find a suitable client.

I'm just setting a new XP x64 machine up myself and I'll have 5.3.13 loaded on
that over the weekend - I hope ...
