There is a plenty of tutorials how to install PEAR and PHP, but there is always something “missing” in this configuration. So this time, i’m going to “sing the same song again”.
Let’s start – PEAR
curl http://pear.php.net/go-pear.phar > go-pear.phar sudo php -d detect_unicode=0 go-pear.phar
Make sure that you have setup similar to this one (may vary about you current setup):
1. Installation base ($prefix) : /usr/lib/php 2. Temporary directory for processing : /tmp/pear/install 3. Temporary directory for downloads : /tmp/pear/install 4. Binaries directory : /usr/bin 5. PHP code directory ($php_dir) : /usr/lib/php 6. Documentation directory : /usr/lib/php/doc 7. Data directory : /usr/lib/php/data 8. User-modifiable configuration files directory : /usr/lib/php/cfg 9. Public Web Files directory : /usr/lib/php/htdocs 10. Tests directory : /usr/lib/php/tests 11. Name of configuration file : /Users/sjas/.pearrc
Very important part of the process is to properly setup includes path in php.ini, by defualt there is no /etc/php.ini, so you have to create / copy it.:
sudo cp /etc/php.ini.default /etc/php.ini sudo nano /etc/php.ini
and make sure that you have something like that:
include_path = ".:/php/includes:/usr/lib/php/share/pear"
sudo pear channel-discover pear.phpunit.de sudo pear channel-discover components.ez.no sudo pear channel-discover pear.symfony-project.com sudo pear install phpunit/PHPUnit pear install -a -f pear.phpunit.de/FinderFacade
XDebug for Mac OS
Bonus tip how to install older version of Pear package:
pear uninstall PHP_CodeSniffer pear installl PHP_CodeSniffer-1.4.8
