Configuring the Embedded Database

During installation, GFI WebMonitor automatically installs a Firebird database that is used by the application as the default database. The default path is: C:\Program Files\GFI\WebMonitor\Data\WEBMON.FDB.


It is highly recommended to use this database for evaluation purposes only.

To change the default location of the Firebird database:

  1. Go to C:\Program Files\GFI\WebMonitor\Data and copy the WEBMON.FDB file.
  2. Save the copied file to the new location.
  3. In GFI WebMonitor, go to Settings > Core Settings > Database.

Firebird database settings

  1. From Database Type, select Embedded.
  2. In the Database Path field, change the path to point to the new location.


To create a new Firebird Database, enter a new database name in the following format: <database name>.fdb
