How to install / access ADODB on server

software development

#1

Hello,

Forgive my noobiness… I’m trying to access an Interbase database on one of my Dreamhost accounts (via DBQ on Joomla). I understand i need to use a script such as ADODB to communicate with the database.

Where and how should I install this script if it isn’t already there?

Many thanks
Nicol

You need to install your own copy of PEAR, like in this guide, and then copy the adodb files into it (the install readme that comes with adodb should tell you where it needs to be installed exactly).

It’s a fairly easy process, so long as you don’t mind working in a *nix Shell.
