I admit, I’m completely a newbie. I searched this forum and found one thread about PEAR and Putty, but when trying to use the suggestions in there to install the HTML_Common package so I could then install quickform I failed.
I tried typing:
$ pear install -o HTML_Common
WARNING: “pear/HTML_Common” is deprecated in favor of "pear/H"
Cannot install, php_dir for channel “pear.php.net” is not writeable by the current user
Right, so I have no idea what to do. Help?
