How to reïnstall PEAR? (Win7U 64) 1.7.7 [SOLVED]

Postby Marcoevich » 18. December 2011 18:27

Dear Community,

Somehow my PEAR folder used by XAMPP got corrupted. Now I want to completely reïnstall PEAR without having to reïnstall XAMPP itself.

Is there any way I can easily achieve this?

I'm using XAMPP 1.7.7

Best regards,
Marcoevich

Download the zip archive version and drag the required PEAR folder into your current installation overwriting any existing PEAR files and folders.

Good luck. :)

Thank you Sharley :)

I've done that, and PEAR is working again.
However, I get an error I've not seen before:

"Strict Standards: Non-static method System::tmpdir() should not be called statically in C:\xampp\php\PEAR\PEAR\Config.php on line 163 Strict "

Do you have any idea how to solve this?

Hi Marcoevich,

You have to change the error_reporting level in your php.ini to a little lower level:

- open your \xampp\php\php.ini file
- search the line
Code: Select all
error_reporting = E_ALL | E_STRICT

- change that line to
Code: Select all
error_reporting = E_ALL

- save the file and restart your Apache.

best wishes,
Altrea
