View Full Version : PEAR already installed?

I made the mistake (ok, I admit it) of trying to install PEAR without checking whether or not it's already installed. I believe it is, as many of the pieces are there. However, I can't seem to add anything to it and I can't run the manager. Is there any documentation on how this is setup on WH? Does anyone have examples of how to use this stuff on WH? I don't need "beginning programming with PEAR"... I just need to know the specifics of using it on Westhost.

Thanks,

It seems it may not be enabled on the accounts. There are folks lobbying WH to enable it here on this thread:

In this thread is sounds as if maybe someone might have gotten an alternative to work but does not give details.

Just a quick follow-up:
I took a PEAR-using script from my home machine, changed the first line to "#! /bin/php" and it worked like a charm. PEAR is already installed and working fine (for me).
