Hi There Damian,

I'm currently working on a web-based app using PHP with Firebird. I've done
several PHP programs in the past with different back-end databases and I've
grown tired of having to go back through most of the code when we need to
switch from one database to another (e.g. from MySQL to PostgreSQL to
Firebird). So now we use a database abstraction layer so we'll only need to
change a few lines (or none at all, in the case in the program to make it use
another database.

There are at least two DAL's for PHP which are available for free:
