  Connection to a server

After you've installed a Firebird server, you need to create a database on this server using the "Database manager". function, or simply copy any existing database onto a server PC. Since version 5.0 local and shared databases have absolutely identical structure, so you can use any database file for multi-user access. In this case you should add a server database into the "Database manager" window:


Here you need enter a server name or server IP address and a full path to the database file on server. Please note that this is a local path to the database. You should not enter a server name or a network drive here. For example, if your database in the "E:\Databases\diary.dndb" folder on your server, you should enter this path when create or add a database connection.


Now you are ready to connect to a server. Just select your new connection in the "Database manager" and click the "Open" button (if you create database, it will be opened automatically). You will see "Connect to a server" window:




Here you see a server name and database path. Enter user login and password. When connecting for the first time you should log in using the default administrator account:

login - SYSDBA, password - masterkey.

You can change default password for SYSDBA account in the "Users manager" window.

Click OK and you will be connected to the database.


Now you can add users in the "Users manager" window. This function is available only for SYSDBA account.

After this you are ready to work. Just add a server database into the "Database manager" window on all client computers and connect to this database.
