PDO / PHP Firebord unavailable database
I am very new to Firebird. I have an Firebird database "employee.fdb" and try to connect via PDO.
I always get the error:
SQLSTATE[HY000]  unavailable database
I have only copied the FDB database file, nothing else.
Is this wrong?
Do I need to install a firebird service?
And if yes; it is possible to connect without something else (embedded)
You need to install the firebird service on the machine that has the file and the service needs to be running before it can connect to the database.
