Installing upgrading pear on Virtualmin to install pear DB

Pear doesn’t let you install pear DB because it is an old version that comes with the Virtualmin install. I have gotten around this by forcing it to install and upgrade. Squirrelmail cant be used without it.

First install pear:

yum install pear

Then type these:

pear upgrade –force Console_Getopt

pear upgrade –force pear

pear upgrade-all

Now pear is upgraded and you can now install pear DB.

pear install DB

There you have it. Now you can use Squirrelmail for your mail.
