In conjunction with the interview I had with Firebird’s Helen Borrie (http://www.sitepoint.com/article/helen-borrie-project-lead), I wanted to make note of this administration user interface to Firebird.

ibWebAdmin, found at Sourceforge (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ibwebadmin), provides gui access similar to phpMyAdmin for MySQL.

It currently supports databases, tables, domains, generators, triggers, indices, users, csv, browse/edit tables, but the project home page notes there is more to do.

While most database administrators will tell you to learn the command line first, and I agree, it is essential to have a good user interface for administration to encourage experimentation with those on other database platforms.
