The reason we were anxious to go to Firebird 1.0 was to not have to mess
with multiple files. We are on NTFS in Windows 2000, I know it can go to
over 4 GB file size.

Oops!!! I just noticed something. This was running at one of our client
sites. Their file system is FAT32! Man! Why did they do that? We always
use NTFS.

I am very sorry about this. It is not Firebird's fault.

Please forgive. Boy, I feel dumb.

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
and carry on.
