IBEasy+ Installation Guide

To install IBEasy+ and avoid trouble, carefully read the following:

  • IBEasy+ installation script is made up of:
    IBEasy+, Firebird and Ace Oledb 12.0.
    All of those softwares are required.

    1- IBEasy+ is the main application

    2- Firebird is the DBMS.
    -IBEasy+ uses Firebird's default port 3050. If you are using a different port, you must change the value in the "Options/Preferences" menu of IBEasy+.
    -If you already have Firebird installed in your system, you can uncheck the install box option.

    If you want to use Firebird embedded, check out the Firebird embedded guide.
    You must install the embedded X32 version of FireBird to use it with IBEasy+.

    3- Ace Oledb 12.0 is needed to export/import data to/from Firebird to Microsoft Office: Excel, Access...
    If Ace Oledb 12.0 is already installed in your system, you can uncheck the install box option. 

  • Define a first user

    You can ignore this section if you are using Firebird embedded
    Once Firebird is installed, you can use IBEasy+. When you first use Firebird, the security database needs to be updated. Only the database admin "SYSDBA" can access a database.
    It is therefore recommended that, at least, one additional user be defined.

    For this, proceed as follows:
    -In IBEasy+ menu "Server/Users management", enter the admin password chosen when installing Firebird and set the user "IBEASY" password "ibeasyuser", or any username and password you want...
