#324 pear lib detection broken + login 1.3.10

Reini Urban

There are 2 small bugs that prevent v 1.3.10 to be
installed and used from scratch ( at least with mysql)


the line ( 7 ? ) :
require_once('DB.php'); // Always favor use our local
pear copy

should be rewriten as

require_once('lib/pear/DB.php'); // Always favor use
our local pear copy

Another anomaly

the line (36 ?)
require_once "DB/common.php";

should be rewriten as
require_once "common.php";

P.S. :Apache/1.3.29 (Win32) PHP/4.3.4 , mysql

There are big troubles with logging in as some user and
not anonymously ( completely broken). So any user
management and right acces management is not possible.

Thank you guys for the nice product however!

    Your suggestions are wrong, as stated in the ReleaseNotes.
    Users should be able to use their own and possibly updated
    pear version.
    Add lib/pear to your include_path if you don't want to use
    your own pear version.

    But we will add a better pear detection logic. (as we
    already had some years ago)

    I cannot really follow your comments on login. Works for us.

    Suggestion about PEAR/DB is right. I had a problem with it
    too. In INSTALL I can read:
    "PhpWiki version 1.3.3 and later includes the necessary PEAR
    libraries and
    will use it if your system PEAR library can not be found."
    So it suggests that I do not have to modify my include path.
    And that phpwiki will take its PEAR/DB without additional
    effort from my side.

    If I read release notes I would know what to do. But this is
    my first installation of phpwiki, so I do not read it.
    My suggestion is to remove comment "Always favor use our
    local pear copy" from sources. Because actually these lines
    do not favor any PEAR copy.
