Hi All,

I'm using SAM Broadcaster v4.9.8, with the standard Firebird database that comes with the programme on Windows XP. I had to re-boot my computer and closed down SAM by going to File>Exit. It closed down in the normal way. Then when I tried to re-start SAM after the re-boot it came up with the error message 'Unable to connect to database. Please ensure database is running before starting SAM'.

Simple question. Can anyone tell me how I go about re-starting the Firebird database please?

Cheers!

Typically Firebird starts as a "service", check Start>>Run>>services.msc look for firebird or similar named service and see if it is starting automatically, if it is not running select start or edit the service and select start automatically and reboot.

I followed the instructions for re-starting the Firebird database. Re-booted my computer, started SAM, it connected to the Firebird database, but now it's freezing up every time it gets to the 'Loading user interface' part of the splash screen.

it is possible for the database to become corrupted, while Firebird gets installed with SAM the database engine of choice is MYSQL. I would highly recommend dumping FB and starting fresh with MySql.
