Very briefly, I upgraded to php 5 in order to upgrade wikimedia to 1.7.
I understand that this breaks my Pear as I read here -
so I downgraded my php to 4.2 so my site would work again.
Of course now my wiki doesn't work so I need to re-upgrade to php 5.
As the above link states I need to add the following to my php configuration file -
PATH_SEPARATOR . '/usr/local/lib/php'
My problem is - how do I do this, where do i find the configuration file?
I'll be eternally thankful for any help anyone can give me.
The site I'm trying to run was sort of abandoned and as a regular user of said site I decided to take over the running as I didn't want to see it go down the pan, as such I'm new to all this but its been a great learning experience (so far).
