Getting the Firebird server version from a client using SQL

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/25

Since Firebird 2.1, you can get the first 3 numbers of the version with this SQL statement:

SELECT rdb$get_context('SYSTEM', 'ENGINE_VERSION')
from rdb$database;

You get it in this format:


Which means you will not get the build number, which for most purposes is still quite OK.
