Temporary File Location

By: Borland Staff

Abstract: Where does InterBase store its temporary files?

Problem:
Where does InterBase store its temporary files?

Solution:
InterBase stores temporary sort files in C:temp by default.

You can specify another location using the TEMP environment variable or
INTERBASE_TMP environment variable, or with an entry in the ibconfig
file.

Note that on Windows NT, the environment variables must be system
environment variables, so that they are visible to the InterBase
service.

You should be able to change this setting easily, then restart the IB
server, without having to reinstall it.
