|Subject||Re: [firebird-support] Writing to Aliases.conf in non-admin mode|
When my application initiates, it checks if there exists a database named MYAPPLICATIONCONFIGURACION.FDB. If it doesn't exist, it creates it. When the application creates the database, it creates 3 UDFs executing SQLs begining with "DECLARE EXTERNAL FUNCTION ..."
The UDFs are the following (the names are in spanish):
It is called with a parameter "Alias". It opens the file aliases.conf, look for the alias and returns a string with the path of the database.
It is called with a parameter "Alias" and a parameter "Path". It opens the file aliases.conf, and adds a new line with Alias=Path.
It is called with a parameter "Directory". It creates a folder in the hard disk with the name indicated.
In the file aliases.conf, there is a line MYAPPLICATIONCONFIGURACION = C:\...\MYAPPLICATIONCONFIGURACION.FDB.
When a user wants to create a new database, the application opens the database MYAPPLICATIONCONFIGURACION and executes the following SQL:
SELECT MMudfPudeEstablecerAlias('Alias','Path') FROM RDB$DATABASE
This can be done using the application in the server or in any client PC of the newtork.

I don't know of any method that allows this. The aliases.conf file
belongs to the administration/configuration of Firebird and that's why
it can only be modified by an administrator.
It should be possible to change to access rights (once, by an
administrator) so "everybody" can have write access to the
