hmm, no idea. I recommend the php-firebird and firebird-support forums at group for this question you have. they are super helpful.

It sounds like an issue with the lock manager that the classic server uses. does it also happen with superserver?

post your question to:

Request for help with RHEL 4 with XAMPP and Firebird

Postby whiterabbit » 07. June 2005 17:42

Hello Kristian and apachefriends,

We started to move our servers over to redhat enterprise 4. On my test server I could not get the procedures we followed in this thread to work for recompiling php to work with firebird and xampp. The errors I was getting were related to bz2 libraries? Can you or someone else give assistance please? Below are the differences:

redhat 9 -> RHEL 4
xampp-linux-1.4.9a -> XAMPP Linux 1.4.13
php-4.3.9 -> php-4.3.11

Below is the procedure I used to get the previous in Nov 2004 working.

Code: Select all
;;using Redhat 9.0
su root
tar xvfz [b]xampp-linux-1.4.9a.tar.gz[/b] -C /opt
tar xvfz [b]xampp-linux-devel-1.4.9.tar.gz[/b] -C /opt
rpm -ivh FirebirdSS*.rpm ( or**NPTL build!!**
ln -s /opt/firebird /opt/interbase
;;;[this is because the default install directory for ver 1.5 is /opt/firebird]
modify sysdba -pw newpasswordhere
tar zxf [b]php-4.3.9.tar.gz[/b]
cd php*

Kristian Marcroft wrote:Hi,

you did do a "make && make install" right?
and then you have to add the extension in php.ini

Hope it helps

So long
