Please make sure you introduced no PHP syntax error when you modified the config.php file of the change_sqlpass plugin.

I had followed this tutorial...and I had used this code.

Now I have used the config.php.sample... and the problem is solved;

But I think that I have problems with pear because when I try to change the pass this happen: "Could not find Pear DB library".

If I do pear list I get this:
Installed packages, channel
Package Version State
Console_Getopt 1.2.3 stable
DB 1.7.13 stable
PEAR 1.9.0 stable
Structures_Graph 1.0.3 stable
XML_Parser 1.3.2 stable
XML_Util 1.2.1 stable

Thanks for your infinite patient.

Try this:

aptitude install php-pear

pear install DB

I had done it yet...
I have done it again, but I have the same problem...: "Could not find Pear DB library"

I works in opensuse 11.1_X64: "yast -i php-pear php-pear-db"
in fact if you see the pear list the DB package appears.

I have no idea why this happens... :(

sruedat 21st January 2010 21:53

I think the error is...
What would be the log file?, this is the apache error_log:
[Thu Jan 21 21:03:51 2010] [notice] suEXEC mechanism enabled (wrapper: /usr/sbin/suexec2)
[Thu Jan 21 21:03:51 2010] [notice] Apache/2.2.10 (Linux/SUSE) mod_ssl/2.2.10 OpenSSL/0.9.8h PHP/5.2.11 with Suhosin-Patch mod_mono/2.0 configured -- resuming normal operations

I solved it

There was a problem with the pear config....
The pear config-show must be so:

Auto-discover new Channels auto_discover <not set>
Default Channel default_channel
HTTP Proxy Server Address http_proxy <not set>
PEAR server [DEPRECATED] master_server
Default Channel Mirror preferred_mirror
Remote Configuration File remote_config <not set>

PEAR username (for username <not set>
User Configuration File Filename /root/.pearrc
System Configuration File Filename /etc/php5/cli/pear.conf
Then I reinstalled the DB package and... it works

The problems was a wrong configuration (you can change it with pear config_set <param1> <param2>)
