Hi!

I have an application that was made with Firebird 3.0 already running on a computer in a company I work at but now I need to develop another app to a company that runs Firebird 2.1.They already have a system running with firebird 2.1. What should I do to make this new application since I can open a 2.1 firebird database on my computer that has 3.0.2 installed.

I tried to install both FB 2.1 and FB 3.0.2 but did not work.

what should I do?

thank you

FireBird supports multiple instances. Install one on port 3050 the other on
port 3051. Then connect to the correct instance when developing.

I did that and it did not work...is there any tutorial showing how to do it? Maybe I did it wrong.

thank you
