Firebird 2.0


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 path

  • The 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.

Symbolic 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:
fbdb1 = c:\Firebird\sample\Employee.fdb
# fbdb2 is on a Linux server
fbdb2 = /opt/databases/killergames.fdb

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.

All paths must refer to local folders only. Network folders or network shares are not allowed.

If you use national characters in either symbolic or physical path, remember to save aliases.conf in plain ANSI
