Earlier today, someone reported pear.php.net as being down. I checked, and it’s loading, so I sent it back to them for Feedback. Later, I built PHP with PEAR so I could use the
pecl command to install an extension for testing. When I ran
make install, I got a nasty failure on the
install-pear target. It’s getting a 404 on the PHAR file.
Take a look at https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=77604
Additionally, it looks like all the PEAR manual files are gone, so maybe the site went down and didn’t come back up properly?
