    Installation

    To enable Firebird/InterBase support configure PHP
    –with-interbase[=DIR] ,
    where DIR is the Firebird/InterBase base install directory, which
    defaults to /usr.

    Note: Note to Win32/Win64
    Users

    In order for this extension to work, there are
    DLL files that must
    be available to the Windows system PATH.
    For information on how to do this, see the FAQ entitled “How
    do I add my PHP directory to the PATH on Windows
    “. Although
    copying DLL files from the PHP folder into the Windows system
    directory also works (because the system directory is by default in
    the system’s PATH), this is not
    recommended. This extension requires the
    following files to be in the PATH:

    fbclient.dll,gds32.dll

    If you installed the Firebird/InterBase database
    server on the same machine PHP is running on, you will have this
    DLL already and fbclient.dll,gds32.dll
    (gds32.dll is generated from the installer for legacy applications)
    will already be in the PATH.
