[solved]How to install PEAR so that php sees it.

Postby jalewis999 » 03. May 2012 04:40

I have been using php through XAMPP wonderful. I added a form to be e-mailed to one of my pages. It needed PEAR to cope with authentication on the SMTP. I have to keep developing on the website itself. I found a .bat file to load PEAR in php folder but php still doesn't recognize it. (pages of errors same as on my site before I initialized PEAR). Could someone please help.

Hi jalewis999 (there is ALWAYS time for a welcome line, especially if you want to get help. It's a matter of politeness (key word netiquette)),

PEAR is just a Repository for PHP Classes, Extensions and Applications.
PEAR already comes configured with your XAMPP installation, you just need to know the extension name to install it.
For easy installation you can use the XAMPP Shell (Button in your control panel v3 beta). Inside that shell you can simply use the PEAR commands
