Hamish - yes, it sounds like you are having an issue with pear.


Try running the following:

pear upgrade pear


Then see if this fixes your issues.

Hi Andrew


I edited the url below and put in my id and an isbn. I received an xml document that refers to urls with jpgs, and when I put them in a browser the picture came up. So it seems to me that part works. When I look in the bookcover.php file the next part refers to PEAR. I seem to be having a pear issue at present would this cause the bookcovers to fail? The problem is if i enter pear list-all for example I receive the following


File http://us.pear.php.net:80/rest/c/categories.xml not valid (received: HTTP/1.0 401 Authentication Required)

Brett - this maybe be a bit of a pain to test - but if you open up the bookcover.php file and find the url for amazon and copy that into a browser while entering in your amazon id as well as the isbn for the record - you should be able to see what is happening.  Let me know if you are able to get this to work or not.


It should look like this:

I cannot get the book covers and summaries working. I have created an aws account with Amozon and have put the id in the .ini file. However it seems to timeout. I sit behind a proxy and am wondering if this has anything to do with it?
