Well, as a problem description, it's all terribly vague. The Linux
user that runs the Firebird server is named 'firebird'. If you have
followed the instructions in the release notes, you should have
created a firebird group and put the firebird user in it, along with
any other system users that need to do file-level stuff on database files.

Then, the firebird group needs to have rwx permissions for every
directory where you house a database; and must have rw permissions
on the database file itself.

Can't tell from your description whether this is what you've done. I
experience a "glump" when I read that you might be trying to use a
filesystem utility to "synchronise" two databases, though....
