That's OK. It was a glitch in the installation program. You have the
right release version. If ibserver is stopping you at 4 Gb then just
believe it - the OS is telling it that it can't take any more.

It would double the size of a database page. It doesn't affect the maximum
possible size of a file on your OS's filesystem.

Database size <> File size

Firebird is designed to be a multi-file database. Just split the database
