After installing PHP 5.0.3 (Windows) from .ZIP file and verifying that command line version seems to work as expected, I change two entries in the php.ini file, i.e.

extension_dir = "d:\php\"

This leads to an error dialogue & error message:

$ php
PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'd:\php\php_interbase.dll' - The specified module could not be found.
 in Unknown on line 0

A search show that the .dll is not included in the .ZIP distribution, though the required gds32.dll can be found.
I can't find it in the PECL archive either, and just to be 100% sure I also checked that it isn't already preloaded.

The manual suggests that the module documentation should be consulted, but it only seems to suggest a recompile --with_interbase'.

Looks like the dll is missing from the 5.0.3 distribution.

ext/php_interbase.dll is present in the .zip on Please make sure your extension_dir is set correctly.

I agree -- there's something odd here. I've just redownloaded
the distribution (from the mirror that I used before), and this time
I find an .../ext dir that contains considerably more .dll's (including the interbase one) than when I did this the first time. (As I deleted the original archive , and went for the 4.0.3 release instead, I can't repeat the problem.)

  Conclusion: any problem is most likely on my side of the net.
