Hi,

When I try to run the following I get an error that command not found

# pecl install uploadprogress

Any ideas? I have tried through
WHM
Module Installers
PHP Pecl > Manage
List, but there are no packages found to install.

Any ideas?

Hi,

When I try to run the following I get an error that command not found

# pecl install uploadprogress

Any ideas? I have tried through
WHM
Module Installers
PHP Pecl > Manage
List, but there are no packages found to install.

Any ideas?
Please try the following paths for the command to access PECL:
Code:
/usr/local/bin/pecl
/usr/bin/pecl
If the error still persists, I would suspect the PHP installation of PEAR and PECL may be missing, incomplete, or otherwise broken in some form; to better determine where the issue may stem from it will help to know more information.

Via root SSH access, please run each of the following commands and let us know the output that is displayed:
Code:
# grep -H '' /etc/*release /usr/local/cpanel/version
# /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -v
# stat /usr/bin/php /usr/bin/pear /usr/bin/pecl
# /usr/bin/php -v
# /usr/bin/pear -V
# /usr/bin/pecl -V
# stat /usr/local/bin/php /usr/local/bin/pear /usr/local/bin/pecl
# /usr/local/bin/php -v
# /usr/local/bin/pear -V
# /usr/local/bin/pecl -V
To note, the commands for "pear -V" and "pecl -V" may output a line showing the server hostname; it's OK to munge the hostname to hide the real domain name.

I did get it to install by running it from the exact location like below:
# /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/pecl install uploadprogress

It installed the uploadprogress.so into the php extensions directory under /usr/local/cpanel though.


Here are the results.

Thank you for the excellent details. Please use the following command to check information from the EasyApache build profiles; this will show if the PEAR build option was toggled from the default, where "0" is the default to include Pear and where "1" means it was toggled to not include PEAR:
Code:
# cd /var/cpanel/easy/apache && grep -HinR pear profile
It will also help to run the following to check for a potential conflicting PHP RPM and related YUM log entries:
Code:
# rpm -qa --qf "%{name}-%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}.rpm\n" | grep -i "php" | sort
# grep -i php /var/log/yum.log
Assuming PEAR is enabled in the build profile settings in EasyApache, it is possible that the pecl script was removed at some point in the past, and if other components of the PHP installation of PEAR/PECL still remain this could cause the PHP install process to skip re-installing the scripts.

While it is the command "pecl" instead of "pear" that is unavailable, the following documentation FAQ entry also explains why the script may not have been re-installed when PHP was last compiled:
Error: "PEAR: command not found"

To correct the problem PEAR (that includes PECL) can be manually installed (as referenced in the above documentation FAQ entry).

As the system currently has the script "pear" please run both of the following commands in attempt to reinstall (and update) the PEAR install, that will include both scripts "pear" and "pecl"):
Code:
# /usr/bin/pear install -f PEAR-1.9.0
# /usr/local/bin/pear install -f PEAR-1.9.0
Please note the PEAR version number is current at the time of writing, but for future reference the PEAR download site should be referenced to obtain the latest version information:
http://pear.php.net/package/PEAR/download

After running the two commands shown above, please use the following commands to verify if the files are updated and if the command "pecl" is available:
Code:
# stat /usr/bin/pear /usr/bin/pecl /usr/local/bin/pear /usr/local/bin/pecl
# /usr/bin/pear version
# /usr/bin/pecl version
# /usr/local/bin/pear version
# /usr/local/bin/pecl version

Don,

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Thanks so much for the quick, thorough, and detailed response.

The first two items checked out ok, but when I tried to manually run the install this is what I got

Code:
[email protected] [/var/cpanel/easy/apache]# /usr/bin/pear install -f PEAR-1.9.0
Didn't receive 200 OK from remote server. (HTTP/1.1 410 Gone)
[email protected] [/var/cpanel/easy/apache]# /usr/local/bin/pear install -f PEAR-1.9.0
Didn't receive 200 OK from remote server. (HTTP/1.1 410 Gone)
I performed an nslookup on pear.php.net which was successful.

What other things can I check to see where I've got a bad entry or a mis-configuration?

Thanks!

I would consider trying the steps in the following PEAR documentation FAQ that details how to upgrade beyond the installed PEAR version 1.3.6:
http://pear.php.net/manual/en/faq.users.php#faq.no-handlers
Why do I get "No handlers for package.xml version 2.0" when I try to install a package?
Code:
You are using a PEAR version lower than 1.4.0.

To install the package, you have to update PEAR via:

$ pear upgrade PEAR

This will install the latest available version of PEAR which is capable of installing packages that have only a package.xml version 2.0.

If you have an old PEAR version installed (i.e. < 1.3.6), you need to use the following commands to install the latest available version of PEAR:

$ pear upgrade --force http://pear.php.net/get/PEAR-1.3.6.tgz http://pear.php.net/Archive_Tar-1.3.1.tgz http://pear.php.net/get/Console_Getopt-1.2.tgz

$ pear upgrade -a http://pear.php.net/get/PEAR-1.4.3.tgz

$ pear upgrade --force PEAR-1.4.11

$ pear upgrade PEAR
If the difficulty persists please consider submitting a support request so that we can take a closer look at the specific issue and the surrounding circumstances involved; when available, please PM me referencing this thread and your new ticket ID number so I may follow-up internally.

The instructions on their website wrong. This is how I got it to run. Notice that there are some very SMALL changes to the initial install instructions.

Code:

Thank you for the excellent feedback.

If entering the command "which pear" I believe the output may indicate the lone command "pear" used the copy of pear in the directory "/usr/local/bin" and hence only applied within the path "/usr/local".

Please ensure to attempt the same corrective procedure but using the full path to "pear"; such as the following to have the update apply to the path within "/usr" (instead of "/usr/local" that is already completed):
Code:
# /usr/bin/pear
Once that's done it should be back to normal based on the results provided thus far.

Ok, thanks for the tip.

1) Why are there two installs of Pear?

2) I finally got /usr/bin/pear and pecl upgraded, but had a problem where everytime I tried to upgrade pear I kept getting an error message. I tried it several times, and finally just left it. I came back two or three hours later and it worked fine.

Code:
[email protected] [~]# /usr/bin/pear upgrade -a http://pear.php.net/get/PEAR-1.4.3.tar
downloading PEAR-1.4.3.tar ...
Starting to download PEAR-1.4.3.tar (-1 bytes)
..............done: 1,745,408 bytes
Didn't receive 200 OK from remote server. (HTTP/1.1 410 Gone)
3) Lastly, after upgrading to 1.4.3, I just ran /usr/bin/pear upgrade PEAR and it skipped 1.4.11 and went straight to 1.90. Is that ok?

Ok, thanks for the tip.

1) Why are there two installs of Pear?

2) I finally got /usr/bin/pear and pecl upgraded, but had a problem where everytime I tried to upgrade pear I kept getting an error message. I tried it several times, and finally just left it. I came back two or three hours later and it worked fine.

Code:
[email protected] [~]# /usr/bin/pear upgrade -a http://pear.php.net/get/PEAR-1.4.3.tar
downloading PEAR-1.4.3.tar ...
Starting to download PEAR-1.4.3.tar (-1 bytes)
..............done: 1,745,408 bytes
Didn't receive 200 OK from remote server. (HTTP/1.1 410 Gone)
3) Lastly, after upgrading to 1.4.3, I just ran /usr/bin/pear upgrade PEAR and it skipped 1.4.11 and went straight to 1.90. Is that ok?
1.) They each belong to two different PHP binaries, one for CGI (in "/usr"), and the other for CLI (in "/usr/local"), as identified via the following commands:
Code:
# /usr/bin/php -v
# /usr/local/bin/php -v
3.) It is OK that PEAR was able to upgrade directly to the latest version.

Thanks for the thorough and excellent direction and patience on this.

My final questions is whether pear/pecl will automatically be updated via /scripts/upcp or yum update, etc.

I'm guessing that the difficulty in upgrading had to do with the fact that I hadn't manually updated it for such a long time.

You're welcome. :)

I am not aware of an automatic method in a stock-default configuration unless a system administrator creates a script to accomplish custom updates using a scheduled cron tab entry. I would recommend using standard pear/pecl commands to accomplish updates instead of yum as yum would be for an RPM-based install that should not be used; the initial install of pear and pecl is provided at the time PHP is compiled from source when running EasyApache.
