Welcome to Firebird 2.5.
Firebird 2.5 has undergone extensive testing and is
intended for widespread production use. However, users
are recommended to follow standard practices before
deploying this release on a production server. ie:
o Please make sure you read the installation
readme and the release notes.
o If you have data you value remember to back it up
prior to installing this release.
o It is recommended that you remove any previous
version prior to installation. Uninstallation
preserves configuration files and log files.
o It is recommended that you carry out your own
tests in a development environment prior to
Windows Vista – The binary installer fails to start
Firebird as a service at installation time, however,
the service does start correctly after a reboot. As a
workaround, you can shift-right click on the Firebird
control panel applet, choose ‘Run as…’ and start the
service from there.
