to load firebird module I changed php.ini


before you start php, you have to prepare dll files because PHP release zip file 
does not have these dll any more. When starting, php gives two errors:

(I copied fbclient.dll from firebird 2.5 to php directory and Apache's bin 

1. cannot load php_interbase.dll.

2. cannot load php_pdo_firebird.dll becuase it requires php_pdo.dll. but to me 
5.3.5 has pdo support in itself!

so I had to use the old 5.3.1 version.

You have to install fbclient 2.5, that's expected.

Pdo_firebird loads just fine, PDO is builtin in PHP, there is no need to enable 
php_pdo.dll. Are you sure that you did not mix versions?

Yes, I have installed firebird 2.5. The firebird extension works fine with php 
5.3.1. I have tested php 5.3.5 with php_interbase.dll which can be downloaded from 
firebird-php, and the server could not load the extension dll. I 
believe the problem is in php 5.3.5.

And about the pdo extension. I do know the pdo is built-in. I could not get 
php_pdo_firebird.dll from, so I tested with the dll from php 5.3.1. and it 
gives error that php cannot find the php_pdo.dll. should I use new 
php_pdo_firebird.dll made for php 5.3.5 or can I use from php 5.3.1? We have php 
5.3 and why is there big change between them?

5.3.1 did not have firebird so no, it can't have worked fine. Your config is 
somehow broken (PATH or something along this line).
