Please help! How to install PEAR with XAMPP.

Postby Audioicon » 23. June 2009 13:40

First of all XAMPP is the best! Without XAMPP I would have turn grey a long time ago.

This is my problem and I have posted this question in the PEAR forum but no body has responded, this is my last hope.

I posting this hear because I am thinking maybe someone here has done this before and can help.

Until today I have never heard about a script or application called PEAR.
Last I know PEAR was something you eat!

I have been using XAMPP 1.7.1 for local testing. Now I need to have PEAR because I have to run an e-mail/log in system that processes e-mail.

Since I don't know what PEAR is and how to install it, I am completely at a stand still or dead end.

I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium and Dreamweaver CS3 with XAMPP 1.7.1.

I have read the PEAR manual but don't really get it.

Is there any tutorials/help or any body that can spare me some information to get this thing running. Anything at all for the novice.

I have tried all I can, the truth is I don't know what the hell I'm dong.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks everyone.

How to install PEAR with XAMPP.

PEAR is already part of the XAMPP package (except for XAMPP lite).

So are you saying I don't need to do anything else?
XAMPP is working well for me, so how do I know pear is working, what do I type?

Can you explain further.

Thanks very much for all your help!

Okay I will and see what happens.

However, I was under the impression that you needed to make some configuration to the php.ini file.

Or there is a url that you typ to confirm PEAR is working.

I will give it a try and see what happens.

Thanks again for your time and patience.

OK, if PEAR is installed as part of XAMPP, it's my understanding that using the following line in a PHP script:

require_once "DB.php";

would find and include the file DB.php, which is supposed to be included within PEAR.

And yet when I try to run the code, I get the following error message:

Warning: require_once(DB.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\xampp\htdocs\wda2-winestore\index.php on line 19

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'DB.php' (include_path='.;C:\xampp\php\PEAR') in C:\xampp\htdocs\wda2-winestore\index.php on line 19


Or am I just not reading this correctly?
