PHP version should greater than 5.2.7. To install a new version of PHP, click the icon of Wamp, and then php->Version -> Get more.

Problem installing PEAR and solution

Today during the confirgration of my phpUnit, when I run C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.3.5>go-pear.bat

I met this problem :

C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.3.5\go-pear.bat

phar “C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.3.5\PEAR\go-pear.phar” does not have a signaturePHP Warning: require_once(phar://go-pear.phar/index.php): failed to open stream: phar error: invalid url or non-existent phar “phar://go-pear.phar/index.php” in C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.3.5\PEAR\go-pear.phar on line 1236

Solution :

Find this code in C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.3.5\php.ini :

[Phar]
; http://php.net/phar.readonly
;phar.readonly = On

; http://php.net/phar.require-hash
;phar.require_hash = On

;phar.cache_list =

Change it to :

[Phar]
; http://php.net/phar.readonly
;phar.readonly = On

; http://php.net/phar.require-hash
phar.require_hash = Off

;phar.cache_list =
