    I need to get apache which is chrooted to acces pear. So I tried first a test like this, but it fails and cannot see why.

    mkdir -p /webroot/usr/share/pear
    cd /webroot/usr/share/pear
    cp -avr /usr/share/pear .

    chown apache:apache /webroot/usr/share/pear -R

    include_path = ".:/webroot/usr/share/pear/pear"

    apache restart

    then run:

    ini_set('error_reporting', E_ALL);
    ini_set('display_errors', 1);

    require_once 'System.php';

    Warning: require_once(System.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 7

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'System.php' (include_path='.:/webroot/usr/share/pear/pear') in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 7

    So I guess there is something I don't see here. Can anyone help me fix this please

    What is Apache's chroot directory?

    Unless I'm mistaken it is:

    You could copy Pear files to Your docroot and refer to them in Your scripts.
    It should work as long as the paths will be corect.

    Thank you for the point in the right direction. I'm a little nervous about this on two counts. 1. I'm new to Linux and there are many things I'm still having to learn. 2. This is a production server, which I did not set up.

    I think I should do the following:

    cd /var/www/vhosts/chroot/usr/share

    cp –avr /usr/share/pear .

    chown apache:apache /var/www/vhosts/chroot/share/pear –R

    vi /etc/php.ini
    Include_path = ”.:/var/www/vhosts/chroot/usr/share/pear”

    Does this seem correct?

    This could work.
    If the Include_path doesn't work, try
    Include_path = ".:/var/www/vhosts/chroot/usr/share/pear:/usr/share/pear"
