I have a fairly fresh Debian Testing install, and I am trying to install PEAR / PECL but when I run the command nothing happens. I don't want to install the PEAR package in the Debian repositories because in my experience it is too old. I have installed php5-dev.
Here is what I tried:
$ wget http://pear.php.net/go-pear.phar $ php go-pear.phar
I also tried
sudo php go-pear.phar.
$ php -version PHP 5.3.6-13 with Suhosin-Patch (cli) (built: Jul 4 2011 12:42:46) Copyright (c) 1997-2011 The PHP Group Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2011 Zend Technologies with Suhosin v0.9.32.1, Copyright (c) 2007-2010, by SektionEins GmbH
Any thoughts how I can see what is going wrong here?
if I do:
php -i | grep phar I get:
Registered PHP Streams => https, ftps, compress.zlib, compress.bzip2, php, file, glob, data, http, ftp, phar, zip Phar-based phar archives => enabled Tar-based phar archives => enabled ZIP-based phar archives => enabled phar.cache_list => no value => no value phar.readonly => On => On phar.require_hash => On => On
There is no phar.ini in

I have installed PEAR from the Debian repositories now and run
pear upgrade. Still interested to figure out why the go-pear.phar installation is not working.
$ whereis php
