Subject configuring firebird on a shared hosting environment
Author David Garamond
i am planning to install an SS firebird on a shared server. is this
recommended, or should users just use direct file access (e.g. does fb
allow, say, any user to install his/her UDF? than SS is totally

also, i wonder how do i accomplish the following:

1) rename the 'SYSDBA' username (to make cracking that account harder);
2) make fb only accept certain database paths (e.g. only below
3) ibserver that comes with rpm from runs as root by
default, what needs to be changed to make it run as, say, user 'ibserver'?
