To work on this feature, user can navigate to (cPanel >> Home >> Software >> PHP PEAR Packages). PHP PEAR packages are software elements.  The software developers write these packages with the help of PHP language. This Package gives permission foe searching and casting PEAR packages to the user’s site, and also in viewing the available PHP packages.

Module Include Path

By the name itself, it can be understood that it’s the part of the interface showing the exact place to keep the user’s module. If you need the citation of the modules, you can use this module include path.

Using Your PHP Extension(s) And Application(s)

The user has to put up a code at the top of the PHP module. It shows the whereabouts of PHP for running the module. The Using Your PHP Extensions Module(s) is that part of the interface which enlists your selection of code that you put up at the top of PHP module.

Install PEAR Package

Steps:

  • In the Install a PHP Extensions and Applications Package text box, enter the name of the module of your choice and click on the Install Now option.
  • In the Search text box, you can enter a search term and click on the Go option. Proceed by clicking on the Install option adjacent to the package that you want to install.
  • By clicking on Show Available Modules option, you can view the available PEAR packages. Click on the Install option adjacent to the package that you want to install.

The interface will thus show the Module Name (the module’s name), Version (the PEAR package’s version number), Description (description of the module) and Actions (actions that might be performed by the user for that module).

Installed PEAR Packages

The Installed Modules table will thus show all the PEAR packages existing on the server.

Each installed PEAR package will show the Module Name (PEAR package’s name), Version (PEAR package’s version number), Actions (actions you can discharge for each package). These actions are:

  • Update — For updating the PEAR package.
  • Reinstall — For reinstalling the PEAR package.
  • Uninstall — For eliminating the PEAR package from the server.
  • Show Docs — For reading the PEAR package’s documentation.

System Modules

The cPanel has in itself some definitive pre-installed PEAR packages. Users can click on Show System Installed Modules option to view the enlisted pre-installed PEAR packages. However, the user should be aware that he, in any way, cannot eliminate cPanel’s system modules.
