Not. Apply it to the top level of the data directory and use the -R switch.

However, if you later add a subdirectory, you will have to apply the
permissions to it, since the recursive switch only works on existing subdirs.

If you are in the firebird group and firebird is in the firebird group, and
you apply rwx group permissions, then both you and firebird will be able to
access the database files.

I forget now what server you said you had installed...if it was SS, then
you have to do local access via localhost.
