Subject Permission denied error creating firebird embedded database in OSX
Author martinsearancke
Firstly I am not 100% sure I am using the embedded firebird client under OSX. The install file that I downloaded from states that it contains Classic, Superclassic & Embedded. Unlike the windows version there does not appear to be a dedicated embedded library file in the package. I have assumed that the libfbclient.dylib (renamed libgds.dylib for my use) can be used as embedded. If I am wrong then I guess thats the problem. Can someone tell me where I get the embedded dylib file?

If libfbclient.dylib is for embedded use also then my question remains. When I try to create the database file for the first time it fails with "Permission denied". I am trying to create this file in the users documents folder. I am using the Interbase Express components in Delphi to connect. This has served me well for years under the windows environment.

The full error message is...
Exception class EIBInterBaseError with message 'I/O error during "open O_CREAT" operation for file '/Users/martin/Documents/LightFactoryShows/default.fdb" Error while trying to create file Permission denied'

Thanks in advance, Martin
