[nycphp-talk] pear package manager

Thanks Dan.  One more quick question.  When I run pear config-get php_dir I
get the following:


and therefore all pear packages are loaded there via the package manager.
I've got a feeling though, that I should be installing these in my web
directory not my PHP directory - cause I'm getting errors when I try to
reference these pear packages via an include or require statement.  Is my
pear configuration correct or should I point it to another spot?

Thanks (again) in advance,

This is nice because it's a temporary change, unlike the preferred state 
option in another message.
