Manifest length read was 1236 sould be 678716787

Hi,

I previously had WAMP server and tried installing pear but the whole configuration got messed up. There was an PEAR_ENV.reg file which i was told to install and which i did...when i got fedup with WAMP, i uninstalled it. Got the following error on running pear.bat from command.com.
The PHP_PEAR_INSTALL_DIR is set to ='c:\wamp\php\php5.2.6'. you need to change the path in the environment variables or change it in pear.bat file.


then i deleted the environment variables from my Winxp System & restarted my system.

Now i installed XAMPP which has pear installed by default... though now i get an error..
Manifest length read was 1236 sould be 678716787

when i run go-pear.bat from my c:\xampp\php\pear path from command.com.

i recreated the pear_env.reg file like this to install the correct paths:
Code: Select all
REGEDIT4
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment]
"PHP_PEAR_SYSCONF_DIR"="C:\\xampp\\php"
"PHP_PEAR_INSTALL_DIR"="C:\\xampp\\php\\pear"
"PHP_PEAR_DOC_DIR"="C:\\xampp\\php\\pear\\docs"
"PHP_PEAR_BIN_DIR"="C:\\xampp\\php"
"PHP_PEAR_DATA_DIR"="C:\\xampp\\php\\pear\\data"
"PHP_PEAR_PHP_BIN"="C:\\xampp\\php\\.\\php.exe"
"PHP_PEAR_TEST_DIR"="C:\\xampp\\php\\pear\\tests"


Now when i run pear.bat again, i get the following error:
Notice: unserialize(): Error at offset 42 of 656 bytes in Config.php on line 105
6
ERROR: The default config file is not a valid config file or is corrupted.


What are the default paths and how to change the environment variables? What am i doing wrong? Do i need to reinstall the Whole working XAMPP again? Do i need to delete the environment variables set manually again, cos their paths may be wrong for XAMPP?

Please advice.

i again deleted the environment variables i created and logged off and on my computer...then again ran pear.bat from command.com...now got the initial error again:
C:\Documents and Settings\sifar786>pear
PHP_PEAR_INSTALL_DIR is not set correctly.
Please fix it using your environment variable or modify
the default value in pear.bat
The current value is:
C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.6\pear


go-pear.bat still gives me the same error:
C:\xampp\php>go-pear.bat
ERROR: manifest length read was "1236" should be "678716787"Press any key to con
tinue . . .

Anyone having an idea what needs to be done to install PEAR correctly with the correct paths on XAMPP???

what needs to be done to install PEAR

PEAR is already part of the XAMPP package. (just use it)

I cant. The reason is, the global environment variables for the directories are not getting set & the older paths of the WAMP server come up. I tried adding them using DOS SET command, though found that its a temporary command. Then added them through windowsXP System > Advanced > Environment variables...
Code: Select all
PHP_PEAR_BIN_DIR=C:\xampp\php
PHP_PEAR_INSTALL_DIR=C:\xampp\php\pear
PHP_PEAR_PHP_BIN=C:\xampp\php\.\php.exe

Ran pear.bat....it ran this time w/o any errors & this was the output, which made me realise that the env variables are being taken from some file located elsewhere in the C:\ drive.
Code: Select all
C:\Documents and Settings\sifar786\Desktop>pear config-show

Searched and found a pear.ini file in the c:\windows directory & it had the following old paths....
Code: Select all
#PEAR_Config 0.9
a:12:{s:15:"preferred_state";s:6:"stable";s:8:"temp_dir";s:28:"C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.6\tmp";s:12:"download_dir";s:28:"C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.6\tmp";s:7:"bin_dir";s:24:"C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.6";s:7:"php_dir";s:29:"C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.6\pear";s:7:"doc_dir";s:29:"C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.6\docs";s:8:"data_dir";s:29:"C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.6\data";s:7:"cfg_dir";s:28:"C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.6\cfg";s:7:"www_dir";s:28:"C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.6\www";s:8:"test_dir";s:30:"C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.6\tests";s:7:"php_bin";s:34:"C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.6\.\php.exe";s:10:"__channels";a:2:{s:5:"__uri";a:0:{}s:12:"pecl.php.net";a:0:{}}}


which shows the paths used when WAMP was installed...tried modifying it with the paths found in the pear.ini located in the c:\xampp\php directory...
but then got this error when i ran "pear config-show" again......
C:\Documents and Settings\sifar786>pear config

Notice: unserialize(): Error at offset 91 of 503 bytes in Config.php on line 105

ERROR: The default config file is not a valid config file or is corrupted.

C:\Documents and Settings\sifar786>


Does this make sense? Do i need to uninstall XAMPP again cos the Config file seems corrupted?

I cant.

OK, you want do something with the PEAR command line tool, instead of just using some PEAR classes. Well, the command line tool is not really working with your XAMPP version.
