Firebird ( is a main opensource clone of Interbase.

Firebird 1.0.2 (current stable release) work with php almost fine.

But Firebird 1.5 (RC2 now available) was rewritten with C++ and php 4.3.2 can't be compiled with this release - configure failed.

Firebird, not Borland Interbase, is now main variant for interbase-like sql server and php MUST support it ;)

try this:

-add in your php_interbase.h this line:
#define ISC_FAR

-before ./configure
export LIBS="-lstdc++ -lcrypto"

if you use FB1.5RC2 .rpm there is a bug.
check in your syslog. You will see an error
looking for firebird.conf in a wrong path.
Adjust it (with right permissions too)

After export LIBS="-lstdc++ -lcrypto":

configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables.

I'm sorry ;)
Not "-lcrypto", but "-lcrypt".

Thanks, it works now!  (FB1.5 RC3 + PHP 4.3.2)
