You can keep your existing *.conf and security database. Quick method. Stop
firebird, rename existing firebird folder to xx_old and then unzip the new
version to the original folder name. Copy your *.conf and security database into
the new copy. Restart firebird, which should use the new copy. Any problems ...
just restore the folder name to the old copy ...
