Installing PHPUnit via PEAR
the install instructions for phpunit are running this:
pear channel-discover pear.phpunit.de pear install phpunit/PHPUnit
the first one goes okay , on the second I get an error:
phpunit/PHPUnit requires PEAR Installer (version >= 1.8.1), installed version is 1.7.2 phpunit/PHPUnit can optionally use package "pear/Image_GraphViz" (version >= 1.2.1) phpunit/PHPUnit can optionally use package "pear/Log" phpunit/PHPUnit can optionally use PHP extension "xdebug" (version >= 2.0.5) No valid packages found install failed
I just installed pear using both the latest go-pear.phar version from php.net(php 5.3.0)
also tried running
php go-pear.php as pear website says.
pear -V gives me version 1.7.2 , when I run
pear upgrade PEAR it says my version is newer than the current noe which is 1.9.0, if ran
pear upgrade -f PEAR to force an upgrade, it downloads the files and installs successfully but I still have version 1.7.2 and cannot install phpunit.
I am running windows vista, php 5.3.0
Try type in console:
pear upgrade pear
I found my solution (‘cweiske’ at irc.efnet.nl #pear) –
I removed my pear folder which resided in:
Save file as
go-pear.php, I saved to
php go-pear.phpset PHP Code dir to same as
and everything works
I am running 1.9.0.
If you have problems with the upgrade or the install process, you can use:
peardev upgrade PEAR peardev channel-discover pear.phpunit.de peardev install phpunit/PHPUnit
It worked for me; I have Windows 7 64x + WAMP.
