Thank you for taking the time to report a problem with the package. Unfortunately you are not using a current version of the package -- the problem might already be fixed. Please download a new version from If you are able to reproduce the bug with one of the latest versions, please change the package version on this bug report to the version you tested and change the status back to "Open". Again, thank you for your continued support of PEAR. Hi Jorge, You appear to be using an exceptionally old version of PEAR. Can you try upgrading? $ pear upgrade pear

Hi Daniel! thanks a lot for you quick response; I've tried to update the pear package and I got this: [root@paluzie ~]# /usr/bin/pear upgrade pear HTTP error, got response: HTTP/1.1 410 Gone Didn't receive 200 OK from remote server. (HTTP/1.1 410 Gone) [root@paluzie ~]# pear upgrade pear HTTP error, got response: HTTP/1.1 410 Gone Didn't receive 200 OK from remote server. (HTTP/1.1 410 Gone) [root@paluzie ~]# I don't have any problem with Internet connection on this server, Yeah, you're right this server has a very old version of PHP and pear, but at this moment there is an application in production there that need to use DB.php. If you have any other idea would be appreciated Thanks in advance

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not a bug. Your PEAR version is attempting to use an API that was retired over 3 years ago. Here is how you resolve that:
