I'm trying to install Laconica, an open-source Microblogging application on my Windows development server using XAMPP as per the instructions provided.
The website cannot find PEAR, and throws the below errors:
Warning: require_once(PEAR.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\xampplite\htdocs\laconica\lib\common.php on line 31
Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'PEAR.php' (include_path='.;\xampplite\php\pear\PEAR') in C:\xampplite\htdocs\laconica\lib\common.php on line 31
You need to fix your
include_path system variable to point to the correct location.
To fix it edit the
php.ini file. In that file you will find a line that says, "
include_path = ...". (You can find out what the location of php.ini by running
phpinfo() on a page.) Fix the part of the line that says, "
\xampplite\php\pear\PEAR" to read "
C:\xampplite\php\pear". Make sure to leave the semi-colons before and/or after the line in place.
Restart PHP and you should be good to go. To restart PHP in IIS you can restart the application pool assigned to your site or, better yet, restart IIS all together.
