Bug #18687 DB/Interbase DSN Problem in Windows
Submitted: 2002-08-01 11:16 UTC Modified: 2002-08-06 09:11 UTC
From: rotherme at andrews dot edu Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: PEAR related
PHP Version: 4.2.2 OS: Windows 2000
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Windows uses back slashes, so line 82 breaks it:

                  ($dsninfo['hostspec'] . ':/' . $dsninfo['database']) :

That would be something like:

$dsninfo['hostspec'] . ':/c:\db\db.gdb'

Which doesn't work.  If line 82 is changed to

                  ($dsninfo['hostspec'] . ':' . $dsninfo['database']) :

(no slash), then it does work.

I just verified the code at work and that is exactly what I have.  ibase://user:pass@host/c:\foo\bar.db is what I'm using, and it doesn't work with that "extra" forward slash.

Unix database names for Interbase usually contain a slash /opt/interbase/db/mydb.gdb
