CENTOS 6.5 i686
WHM 11.42.1 (build 16)

Neither of these options list any packages:
PHP Extensions and Applications Package
PHP Pecl

This is a brand new server image set up a few days ago at Knownhost. I want to install SOAP via PEAR (don't really want to do Easy Apache).

Rebuilt RPM database. Didn't help.

Any advice?

Hello :)

Are you using Web Host Manager or the command line to list the packages? For instance, if with WHM, do you notice the same result when using "pecl list" or "pecl install" via the command line?

Thank you.

Hi and thanks for replying!

I was using the WHM interface, but I just tried the command lines:

pecl list
(no packages installed from channel pecl.php.net)

pecl install
Nothing to install

Thanks!

Ideally, you should install the SOAP module via EasyApache. However, you could use the command line to install PECL or PEAR modules (e.g. "pear install MODULE-NAME or pecl install MODULE-NAME). As for Web Host Manager, check /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log when browsing the page to see if you notice any error messages when a list of modules fails to load.

Thank you.

Well something changed and 100 pecl packages are showing up in WHM now. Still nothing in pear. My /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log shows nothing recent except a bunch of entries of "repquota: Cannot stat() mounted device /dev/simfs: No such file or directory"

I'm glad the pecl packages are showing up. Should the pear list be showing anything?

As for SOAP, I've decided not to install it but I'd still like to get all the packages showing up in WHM.

Thanks for your help.

Browse to the "System" tab in "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Tweak Settings" and try increasing the "Max cPanel process memory" value to see if the PEAR list of modules displays in Web Host Manager.

Thank you.
