Xampp already has pear folder but is missing Mail.php?

Postby aanders50 » 12. January 2017 15:21

Been trying to manually get the files installed, but each time I find and add something it then throws additional errors about other dependencies. I am wondering if PEAR just has skeleton code/files here that came with Xampp's initial install.

I have gone back and removed all the extra stuff I added/changed in an attempt to have someone who has done this before help me through it. PHP has been working fine for me so far as I use it for the backend of my application and I am just trying to extend mailing features now for user registration.

Using my template code it currently just complains that it cannot find "Mail.php" when I do require_once "Mail.php", doing a search under Xampp/php returned no results for Mail or Mail.php

The exact error is..

Code: Select all
Warning: require_once(Mail.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\xampp\htdocs\MyApplication\PHP\Register\register.php on line 97

Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required 'Mail.php' (include_path='C:\xampp\php\pear\') in C:\xampp\htdocs\MyApplication\PHP\Register\register.php on line 97

As for the /php/pear directory looks like

And I took a screenshot of /php/pear/PEAR/ as well

Any help appreciated! Will be trying to check back hourly.

PEAR is a library containing more than 600 packages.
Of course didn't XAMPP include all of them by delivery (how huge should the download file of XAMPP be?).
So, you just need to know how to install a missing pear package?

Why do you still use PEAR? All modern projects i know have switched to composer with packagist. PEAR is a dying distribution system (just my 2 cents).
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
