    Default Firebird 2.5.1 - where is the service start/stop. Help Please

    Hello!
    How are you?

    We have Opensuse 42.2 leap 64 bits. It is a server
    I did download FirebirdCS 2.5.1 and install it. The installation is ok. No errors message.
    Firebird stay installed on /opt.
    But, there is no service to start/stop it.

    I tried: service firebird start
    the system tell me that no firebird service

    What is my errors?
    I read many foruns about Linux firebird installation But, I do not know what to fix or the correct install mode in opensuse.

    I need some help about this, because the server is stop and I need start production

    Sorry my English

    Thank you attention and help

    Not sure how and where you installed it from, but 42.2 ships with Firebird Classic (CS) 2.5.6 as "firebird-classic" package.

    This is fully integrated into systemd and can be started with systemctl start firebird

    Database files for the 42.2 version would be located in /var/lib/firebird - this assuming you don't explicitly require 2.5.1.

    I can not install Firebird Classic (CS) 2.5.6 from opensuse software packages because the application run only in FirebirdCS-2.5.1.26351-0.amd64
    So, the install go ok
    But, how to start it?

    Thank your attention

    Okey then, I took a quick peek at the old Firebird 2.5.1 tar you linked and because of "changes", it no longer creates the init files properly.

    Good news is it's easy to fix - as root run the following commands;
    Code:
    cp /opt/firebird/misc/firebird.init.d.suse /etc/init.d/firebird
    chown root.root /etc/init.d/firebird
    chmod 775 /etc/init.d/firebird
    ln -s /etc/init.d/firebird /usr/sbin/rcfirebird
    Then you can manipulate the service with either rcfirebird or /etc/init.d/firebird

    Isn't this typo? should be : instead of .
    Code:
    chown root:root /etc/init.d/firebird

    Ok, can't find it in the man page. And never knew it will work with a dot in all my 40 years of Unix usage .

    And to the OP. This works thanks the fact that systemd is still compatible with the old SysVinit way of working. Mind that that compatibility might vanish in the future.

    A FYI if doesn't work,
    There is an old Firebird package for openSUSE 13.2, version 2.5.2 you can also try. There's a reasonable chance it would have a systemd unit file (I haven't checked).

    Please don't suggest mixing packages from different (major) versions. People will read this kind of advice as generic for openSUSE. This may work for Firebird, but will defnitely break stuff if forced on other packages.
