Download the latest installer ( https://www.firebirdsql.org/en/firebird-3-0/#Win64 )
And then the ODBC driver ( https://firebirdsql.org/en/odbc-driver/ )
Create a database using the ISQL command line tool ( https://www.firebirdsql.org/pdfmanual/html/isql-create-database.html )
Use CONNECT or CREATE DATABASE to specify a database
To create a database named monkey.fdb and store it in a directory named test on your C drive:
SQL>CREATE DATABASE 'C:\Users\Graham\Documents\rebol.fdb' page_size 8192 CON>user 'SYSDBA' password 'masterkey';
In the CREATE DATABASE statement it is mandatory to place quote characters (single or double) around path, user name and password.
When running Classic Server on Linux, if the database is not started with a host name, the database file will be created with the Linux login name as the owner. This may cause access rights to others who may want to connect at a later stage. By prepending the localhost: to the path, the server process, with Firebird 2.0 running as user firebird, will create and own the file.
To test the newly created database type:
SQL>SELECT RDB$RELATION_ID FROM RDB$DATABASE; RDB$RELATION_ID =============== 128 SQL> commit;
