Isn't that the same for any other DB engines after setting up for the first run? Show me another one that can do this.
I actually tried to say that with one click on install, FB is running after under a minute installing.
Setting up users, creating tables always require SQL commands from the user or user defined batch files or functions.

FB Installation compared to PostgreSQL is much simpler, faster and easier.

Thanks valdir :)
But i need mainstream hosting for the users of my applications. The users can them self use their own shared hosting.
I just don't understand why FB is not accepted on standard hostings. Since it is so good.

It was, but it hasn't been for decades.

Thanks valdir!
Actually i'm an Delphi expert From Delphi 1 to Delphi Pro 7. After that the price of new versions skyrocketed and i gave Delphi up.
Lazarus is not allot different to Delphi 7. So, it's very easy to get into it.
I would not call myself as a newcomer to Lazarus even if i just started using it in production. I understand most of it, but i'm new to Lazarus.

I have also used Firebird since version 1, and still amazed how stable it is.

I think we'll have to agree to disagree- at least until I've finished setting up the fallback servers I'm working on.
