Subject RE: [firebird-support] How to stop the Firebird service on Linux
Author Rick Debay
Beware of running '/etc/init.d/firebird restart' as right now the script
doesn't wait for the process to end before it tries to start it again.
I think this has been fixed in 2.0, check the release notes to see if it
made it in to a release.

Assuming your installation went all well, you only have to open a
console and as root enter the following command without the quotes:

"/etc/init.d/firebird stop"

This will stop the firebird server. If you replace stop with start, you
will start the firebird server.
