Description Mykhailo 2018-01-23 11:48:22 UTC
I'm trying to connect to remote db using perl DBD::Firebird or PHP-Interbase module and in both cases i've got an error: operating system directive stat failed

With firebird 2.5 installed everything is ok

But if i ran the same script under root or with sudo - all is ok.

Look's like this is local installation problem with file permissions, owners, etc..

Dont know why, but chmod 777 /etc/firebird helps for me

Is this still a problem with 3.0.4.* ?
