Any chance you might be able to add support for Firebird in an upcoming version?
Firebird is a super-elegant DB server running on multiple platforms with virtually no resource demands and a fairly pure implementation in its SQL dialect. It has been around for more than 30 years (previously named InterBase before it was forked when open sourced). History here: http://www.firebirdfaq.org/faq238/
More info at http://www.firebirdsql.org/en/about-firebird/
I am not going to implement it by myself but I would accept a good implementation from someone else. The instructions for improving a driver are at http://www.adminer.org/en/drivers/.
I have developed and published a firebird driver for adminer.
You can find the files and all installation and usage instructions here:
Thanks, this is now included in Adminer.
This is great news.
When do you start publishing that Adminer supports Firebird on the Adminer website? Is it stable enough yet? -- Unfortunately I'm a couple months from having free time to try this . . .
Superb. I'll give it a try soon!
I am trying the module, but run into problems when trying to connect to the database.
What am I supposed to put into the fields Server and Database?
I would like to connect locally, so leaving Server empty should do the trick
In database, should I supply the full path to the fdb-file (like e.g. /opt/Firebird/scs4/scs4.fdb)?
Anything I put there gives me "unavailable database" as error.
(I'm running apache2, php5 with interbase-plugin and firebird 2.5 on a raspberry with raspbian).
as usually, as soon as you post something, you get a new idea and this solves the problem.
So anyone using this and having the same problem, the above given link gives all the information you need....
