interbase cannot connect ibase_connect

I just installed the evaluation version of PHPEd 5.9 on Windows XP Pro SP 3
I am trying to connect to a firebird database.
The php_interbase.dll is installed default.
I really need help as there appears to be ZERO information on how to fix this.

Yet when attempting to run the code I get the following:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function ibase_connect() in C:\downloads\Programming\bhph1\php\initial.php on line 22

Code is as follows:

$host = 'localhost:\Program Files\BDC Database Server\bdc.fdb';
$username = 'SYSDBA'; $password = 'masterkey';
$customertbl = 'TBLCUSTOMERS';
$customerstmt = 'SELECT CUSTOMER_ID,FIRST_NAME,LAST_NAME FROM ' . $customertbl;

LINE 22 ==== $dbh = ibase_connect($host, $username, $password);

$stmt = '$customerstmt';
$sth = ibase_query($dbh, $stmt);
while ($row = ibase_fetch_object($sth)) {
echo $row, "\n";


I was able to get rid of that error by removing several semi colons in the php.ini file that uncommented some dlls.

NOW I get an error:

That the database is not available

Even though other NON-PHP code can locate and open that database.

Since I usually do not work with WINDOWS based code, this is presenting a task that makes me not want to work with win32/64 code at all.
