Description: ------------ see the comments on https://pear.php.net/bugs/bug.php? id=18211 Helgi Þormar Þorbjörnsson said, that go-pear.php is an obsolate way to install pear, one should use go-pear.phar instead. currently the documentation contradicts this fact: http://pear.php.net/manual/en/installation.getting.php it explicitly advertises the usage of the go-pear.php, and didn't mention the existence of go-pear.phar http://pear.php.net/go-pear should be also changed to redirect/duplicate http://pear.php.net/go-pear.phar

http://pear.php.net/manual/en/installation.getting.php reads as though it's the go- pear.phar version to me at this time.

Ah, that last little bit: "PEAR in hosting environments If you are running your site at a web hosting provider with no direct access to the server (via local logins, Telnet or SSH), you can use the PEAR Installer using the Web Frontend or (S)FTP. Go to go-pear and save as go-pear.php. Copy go-pear.php to your server and open the corresponding URL in your browser, for example http://example.com/pear/go- pear.php."
