Tested on Debian Lenny.
Time elapsed before a working script < 10 minutes 😉
Install PEAR installer:
# apt-get install php-pear
to get help.
On root shell type:
# pear install --alldeps Image_Graph
Install failed with error:
Failed to download pear/Image_Graph within preferred state “stable”, latest release is version 0.7.2, stability “alpha”, use “channel://pear.php.net/Image_Graph-0.7.2” to install
# pear install --alldeps Image_Graph-0.7.2
Repeat for other alpha dependencies the same procedure, eg:
pear install --alldeps Numbers_Words-0.15.0
At last, you got:
Nothing to install
Now, you can find all installed packages on /usr/share/php.
ImageGraph is installed on /usr/share/php/Image/Graph.php.
You have to include it on your PHPs.
You can follow the Ian’s howto on:
To start using PEAR Image_Graph.
Here the result using Ian’s code on my Linux box:
Hosting providers (eg. HostMonster) sometimes furnish simplified PEAR installation via CPanel. So, you can use local PEAR installation for developement, and online installation for production use.
- To check differences between local and production versions
- To change include path! (say no to white screen!)
