Do hosting service providers need to install the package.xml file of the PayPal PHP SDK package through Pear?

As a hosting service provider, you have two options:

  1. Install the Pear package on any of your PHP-enabled servers immediately to provide access for all users on the server to the package.
  • The key benefit is that as long as Pear is in the PHP include path, all your users have access to use the same resources.
  • This saves your users disk space and saves you time and requests to install the package individually.
  1. Refer your users to search the internet, or draft an article defining how to use the ini_set() and ini_get() functions for manually forcing an include path into the application and placing the required files within their own directory structure.
