Subject Confirm: Chkconfig firebird off command
Author rodbracher

I need to log onto a remote site via putty to do a maintenance
backup/restore. Sometimes I get 'database in use' when I try to
restore 'over' the existing GDB. This is always someone having left
the app open on one of the clients.

Is it safe to:
exec Chkconfig firebird off
change GDB name
exec Chkconfig firebird on
do restore

Could this corrupt the existing GDB?

This is on Linux Firebird Classic Server v1.0.3
