In PHP, PEAR stands for PHP Extension and Application Repository. Recently i has been installed PEAR on WAMP(Windows Apache MySql PHP) machine in window 7. I am using two versions of PHP in my local wamp machine that is PHP5.2.9 and PHP5.3.10. I installed pear with PHP5.2.9, and also you can depends on you PHP version.
What have to do to install PEAR?
First of all you have to download http://pear.php.net/go-pear.phar file, and put this file into your PHP directory. I installed my wamp on “D:\” drive, and by default it is installing on “C:\” drive so please make sure about the location of your WAMP machine, and the go-pear.phar file should go like “D:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.9\go-pear.phar”.
