Access Firebird Control Center from the system tray:
Early Firebird 1.0.x versions did not include a control panel applet to
start/stop the server (as known from Interbase 6 Open Edition). So I've created my
own "Firebird Control Panel Applet". Since Firebird 1.5 now includes a native
"Firebird Server Manager", I decided to rename my CPL to "Firebird Control Center"
to avoid confusion.
Intergrates nicely into Windows Control Panel on Windows XP, Windows Vista,
Windows 7, Server 2003, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2.
(also known to work on Windows Home Server, Windows Server 2008 Foundation)
Control whether the server starts up as a service (Windows NT and up), or
let the server run as an application.
Configure Firebird to use the Firebird Guardian. Guardian will restart
the server process in case of a crash.
Set autostart option. Normally, the Firebird server is automatically
started on Windows startup.
Put Firebird Control Center into system tray. You have access to all Firebird
Control Center functions by clicking the tray icon.
Integrated alias manager. View, create or edit database aliases which can be used
by client application to access database on server without knowing
the exact file path.
Use the Tools Manager to register your favourite Firebird Tools
into Firebird Control Center Tray Icon.
If installed, FlameRobin is automatically
detected and added to the tools menu.
View the Firebird Server log file, access the firebird.conf file or open up a Windows Explorer in firebird's root directory.
Due to registry key changes in FB1.5, the Firebird
Control Center is not compatible with Firebird 1.0.x. If you need a Control Panel
for Firebird 1.0.x, please download fbmgr V0.22.
Firebird Control Center is not able to switch between different Firebird
server instances (for example switch between Firebird 1.0 and Firebird 1.5). If you would
like to have both Firebird 1.0 and Firebird 1.5 running on the same machine,
please look at InterBase and Firebird Coexistance-Project on Sourceforge.net.
