finally deprecated. The installer is currently undergoing a complete re-write to comply with the Flat Package Format. Until this work is completed, you can manually install Firebird using the following method.

New release for node-firebird driver with one bug fix and a few improvements :

Fix a problem with sequential read (#78)

Improvement : Reading of fetched packet

when cacheQuery is set to true each query is cached for faster re-use during the connection like in Jaybird.
after the query is cached these steps are saved :

  1. Query allocation

Here is the guide on installing Firebird 2.5.4 from FreeBSD 10.2 Ports and creating your first test database; also we show you how to install Flamerobin GUI (administration tool) and the PHP driver for it. This was tested on fresh FreeBSD 10.2 x64.

Download a compressed snapshot of the Ports Collection into /var/db/portsnap.

portsnap fetch

Or update it. If you are running Portsnap for the first time, extract the snapshot into /usr/ports:

portsnap extract

If you already have a populated /usr/ports directory and you are just updating, run the following command instead:

portsnap update

Enter firebird server ports directory:

cd /usr/ports/databases/firebird25-server

Compile and install firebird server:

make install

Enable it by adding


in /etc/rc.conf.

Start it with:

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/firebird start

logs and security2.fdb seems to be in /var/db/firebird.


To create a new database:

SQL> create database “tmp/first_database.fdb”;
SQL> connect “/tmp/first_database.fdb” ;

Commit current transaction (y/n)? <– y
Database: “/tmp/first_database.fdb”

If you want to create a simple table then insert 1-2 rows and select from it; here is one example:

SQL> show tables;

SQL> select * from test;
============ ====================
1 John
2 Joe

To quit the isql-fb console, type quit:

SQL> quit

For a good open source GUI admin tool you might check the flamerobin administration tool included in ports repository; it can be installed by a simple:

cd /usr/ports/databases/flamerobin/ && make install clean

Or if you don’t want to wait use pkg-add

pkg-add -r flamerobin

To use firebird with php, you will need the php5 driver:

cd /usr/ports/databases/php5-interbase/ && make install clean

You can choose to compile php with apache support (I have chosen cli, cgi , and apache support); check it if is enabled with:

/usr/local/bin/php -m

Or if you don’t want to wait compile all the php use pkg-add

pkg-add -r php5-interbase
