PHP PEAR on GoDaddy

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

Today I moved the server side components of to my hosting service for the first time.  Yahoo — the launch is getting closer!

The sever side is done in PHP due to the extreme cost effectiveness of hosted LAMP.  I used a few modules from the most excellent PEAR collection.  All good, except when I installed the code at, I was missing the PEAR modules.

The PEAR modules are a lot of code, so I was very happy to find this clear and concise blog posting that explained how to install PEAR at GoDaddy.  Basically, you install an installer on your web account and then use a web based front end to install your selected PEAR components.
