I had the same probelm, since unfortunately no distro includes the
interbase.so 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 interbase.so 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.
