    A forum with Firebird?


    Is there some forum that can run on FireBird?

    From what I checked, phpbb can't .

    http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=88651
    scroll to second post
    I should add that preliminary support for Firebird (Interbase) has also been added ... I know that's a (quietly) much requested feature.
    Download the 2.2 version from here

    I guess I'll wait till the release of 2.2.

    Though in the while.. What do you think of using Firebird together with MySQL? One for the forum and one for the rest.
    Do you see any problem with that?

    From what I read in the forums the interbase support is still imperfect and the guy that tried said it failed to finish the setup successfully.
