PHP PEAR Packages



PHP PEAR packages are software components that developers write in the PHP language. The PHP PEAR Packages interface allows you to search for and add PEAR packages to your website, or view all of your website's available PHP packages.


Module Include Path

The Module Include Path section of the interface displays the location where the system will store your modules. If you wish to reference those modules from other modules or programs, use this include path.


Using Your PHP Extension(s) and Application(s)

The Using Your PHP Extensions Module(s) section of the interface lists a choice of code that you must include in the top of your PHP module or application. This code represents the location of PHP that the system will use to run the module or application.
