PECL on dreamhost


I need the PECL zip extension to run on one of my domains.

I’ve compiled a ‘custom’ install of PHP and I have it running, but now I’m at a loss as to how to get the PECL/zip installed. Every thing I’ve found online required root access (and I don’t imagine DH will grant that to me).

running #pecl install zip hits a fatal error (memory maxed out), and I can’t figure out how to install it manually.

Are there instructions on the DH wiki somewhere, or would someone help me out here?
