Convert MariaDB to Firebird

Full Convert is designed for ease of use and reliability to make sure you get your job done as quickly and as simply as possible.

Making migration easy for you

Full Convert is a fully self-tuning software. Your migration will work as expected without you needing to adjust anything.

Data types are different in Firebird compared to MariaDB. We automatically adjust them as we copy the tables so you don't have to worry about it. You can adjust the mapping rules if you wish to change the following defaults:

  • bigint unsigned bigint
  • binary blob sub_type 0
  • bit smallint
  • blob blob sub_type 0
  • datetime timestamp
  • double double precision
  • enum varchar(255)
  • float double precision (if precision > 24)
  • geography blob sub_type 1
  • geometry blob sub_type 1
  • int unsigned bigint
  • json blob sub_type 1
  • longblob blob sub_type 0
  • longtext blob sub_type 1
  • mediumblob blob sub_type 0
  • mediumint int
  • mediumint unsigned int
  • mediumtext blob sub_type 1
  • nchar char
  • nvarchar varchar
  • set varchar(255)
  • smallint unsigned int
  • text blob sub_type 1
  • tinyblob blob sub_type 0
  • tinyint smallint
  • tinyint unsigned smallint
  • tinytext blob sub_type 1
  • varbinary varchar
  • year int

Full Convert migration in 4 easy steps

MariaDB connection


We will choose MariaDB from the source database engines list. As our MariaDB server is on the local machine and we have full privileges, we will simply choose a database from the dropdown menu.



We will choose Firebird from the list of available database formats.

In the server field we need to type the name or IP address of the Firebird server. If you have Firebird installed on the local machine, where Full Convert is running, you can leave the server field blank. Username and password we don't need to touch in most cases as Full Convert pre-fills the "magic" values which opens all Firebird databases.

If Firebird is on this machine, we can now simply click ellipsis (...) button to select FDB database file. If the file is on remote machine, you need to type the path to the file as remote server sees it. So, if the file is in C:\t\ folder on your server, you need to write the full path, for example: C:\t\filename.FDB.

Start the conversion

All source tables are selected for conversion by default. In case you only need some tables, simply deselect the ones you don't need - or deselect all, then select just the tables you do need. Click the Copy your database button to get started.



Conversion is highly-optimized to run as fast as possible, yet provides top-notch reliability. Huge tables are converted in small chunks at a time, preserving memory and ensuring that your computer stays fast and responsive.
