Hello there,

Getting and error when I try to install Pear on my webbhost. Can anyone help me. I think I know were the problem is but I do not know how to correct it.

Here is the error:

Installation in progress ...
(If the page stops loading before the end of the installation, then just reload it)

40 %

0 %

Starting installation ...
Loading zlib: ok

Bootstrapping Installer...................
Bootstrapping PEAR.php............(remote) ok
Bootstrapping Archive/Tar.php............(remote) ok
Bootstrapping Console/Getopt.php............(remote) ok

Extracting installer..................
Downloading package: PEAR.............ok
Downloading package: Structures_Graph....ok

Preparing installer..................
could not acquire shared lock (/www/webvol4/xz/3nviorirl1wepdm/

And I think the problem lies here (point 11):

The following PEAR packages will be installed. You can select some optional
packages to be installed by go-pear too:

Package Description
(required) PEAR core PEAR Base System
(required) PEAR_Frontend_Web-beta Webbased PEAR Installer
PEAR_Frontend_Gtk2 Graphical PEAR installer based on PHP-Gtk2
MDB2 database abstraction layer.

Below is a suggested file layout for your new PEAR installation.

1. Installation prefix ($prefix)
2. Temporary files directory
3. Binaries directory
4. PHP code directory ($php_dir)
5. Documentation base directory
6. Data base directory
7. Tests base directory
8. PEAR Installer cache directory
9. Cache TimeToLive
10. Filename of WebFrontend
11. php.exe path, optional (CLI command tools)


HTTP proxy (host:port) :

Compatibility-Mode for old non-DOM Browsers


Note: Installation might take some time, because go-pear has to
download all needed files from Just be patient and wait for
the next page to load.
