The aliases.conf file defines mapping between
symbolic database names and full database file access paths. Mappings
are in of the form:
symbolic_name = full
symbolic_name is a string that contains no whitespace and names a
database on the server being configured.
The full path is
a string giving a full path to the database file containing the
database names and paths are case-sensitive on Linux but not on
Windows. As in all of Firebird's configuration files, the '#'
symbols are comment markers, as in the following example:
# fbdb1 is on a Windows server:
# fbdb2 is on a Linux server
You can edit aliases.conf whilst the server is
running. There is no need to stop and restart the server in order for
new aliases.conf entries to be recognised.
