Description text: Firebird 3 brings numerous innovations, such as the long-awaited full SuperServer's SMP support, network and database encryption, local user authentication in the database, improvements in the communication protocol, in addition to several new features in different areas of the DBMS. All this made the migration process from an older Firebird version a bit more complicated than it was in previous versions, where, basically, all you had to do was replace the server with the new Firebird version or, at worst, a backup and restore of the database.
With Firebird 3, you have different user management plugins allowing the same user to exist in several different plug-ins, with different passwords. The SYSDBA is now optional, as well the use of the security database (you can use any existing database as the security database).
This Guide will help you in the process of migrating your existing databases and servers to Firebird 3, avoiding headaches and bad surprises!
