Package php-pear in Ubuntu 12.04 only works with PHP <= 5.2
For PHP >= 5.3 use
wget http://pear.php.net/go-pear.phar php go-pear.phar
I have installed PHP PEAR in ubuntu using
sudo apt-get install php-pear
After successfull installation first time.When I try to run it in terminal, it shows error:
The program 'pear' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt-get install php-pear
I again tried to install it. Then it shows that
php-pear is already the newest version.
I have checked many questions on SO. In every question it is mentioned to locate pear etc. But above mentioned error is not solved.
I even tried installing pear many times with sudo and running it. It gives same error.
Please help to sort it out.
