I had the same probelm, since unfortunately no distro includes the php module... (except... maybe debian has it...)

So I installed the sources of php that came with rh9, applied all their
patches and compiled the module.

If you want you can download it here:
I compiled it against firebird 1.02

Copy it to:

and create the file:
/etc/php.d/interbase.ini with these lines:

; Enable interbase/firebird extension module

restart apache "service httpd restart" and you should have firebird
support in your php.

Additionnally you can read this tutorial:
"Getting started with php and InterBase"

If you have more trouble let me know.
