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:
- 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.
- 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.
