Forum OpenACS Q&A: Interbase 6.0 / Firebird

Posted by Malte Sussdorff on
Has anyone tried to run OpenACS against a Firebird database. At the moment I'm only looking into accessing the database, so having a interbase driver would be enough. In the long run though it might make sense for people who run Windows to use their existing Interbase / Firebird database for OpenACS as well (as nearly all Delphi developers use that database). Let it be known that I shall not intend to port it or ask the OpenACS community to maintain a third database. I'm just wondering if anyone ever did this and if yes, how.

There's an aolserver odbc driver that probably will work for connecting to interbase ...

Um, looks there is an (external) AOLserver Interbase driver, nsibasepd.
