Subject Re: [firebird-support] database full path
Author Stefan Heymann

you can only rename or delete a database when your application is
residing on the database server. There is no means to do that when
your application is connected from a remote machine.

When you are already on the server, you can directly read aliases.conf
and get the path and file names from there.

Best Regards
