Jacques Marneweck's Blog:
Grab PEAR via CVS is you need it
August 04, 2008 @ 09:34:40

Jacques Marneweck has a quick reminder for those trying to get the latest PEAR installer - you can always get it from CVS.

Quick note that the PEAR installer is missing (go-pear.org has expired and has been snapped up by some cybersquatters) and http://pear.php.net/go-pear renders a 404. So the current solution is to grab the go-pear install from CVS.

A quick curl call to a url on the cvs.php.net site (in the /pearweb directory) is all it takes to grab the latest. The page it's pulling is the source for the go-pear.php installer that can be run either from a web browser or from the command line (with a PHP binary).

Greg Beaver's Blog:
Mac OS X ships with security hole-laden PEAR - how to upgrade immediately
January 25, 2007 @ 06:59:45

Mac OS X PHP developers, listen up - Greg Beaver has a word of advice for you about your default PEAR installation:

I won't get into the questionable business practice of shipping software with known security holes that have had known fixes for years. Instead, I would like to offer simple step-by-step instructions of how to upgrade from outdated buggy PEAR versions to the latest stable release, 1.5.0.

You're five simple steps away from having an upgraded installation, all using the built-in pear installer and go-pear functionality.

Bundled go-pear.phar broken in 5.2 windows releases
November 07, 2006 @ 07:42:00

The PHPWomen have posted a quick note about some of the broken-ness that's happened in the latest release of PHP, version 5.2, and the go-pear.phar file in the Windows releases.

Greg Beaver fixed it immediately, but the fix was NOT incorporated into the 5.2 releases for windows - however the file for the source releases is correct. If you are getting errors that look like this

If you're getting an error like they mention ("cannot use scalar value"), you'll need to go over and grab the latest Go-pear from the CVS repository and install it instead.
