You can install the package via composer:

The package will automatically register itself.

Declare the connection within your config/database.php file by using firebird as the driver:

'connections' => [

    'firebird' => [
        'driver'   => 'firebird',
        'host'     => env('DB_HOST', 'localhost'),
        'port'     => env('DB_PORT', '3050'),
        'database' => env('DB_DATABASE', '/path_to/database.fdb'),
        'username' => env('DB_USERNAME', 'sysdba'),
        'password' => env('DB_PASSWORD', 'masterkey'),
        'charset'  => env('DB_CHARSET', 'UTF8'),
        'role'     => null,


To register this package in Lumen, you'll also need to add the following line to the service providers in your config/app.php file: $app->register(\HarryGulliford\Firebird\FirebirdServiceProvider::class);


This package does not intend to support database migrations and it should not be used for this use case.
