Don't know what version of horde/imp you are running but I'm running
the head version with Freebsd 6.0 with no major issues.
First you need to install the php4-pear port first and then you can
decide to install the rest of pear from ports or directly with:
# pear install [whatever]
There is a good step by step proceedure in horde/docs/INSTALL but not
I have installed the following php5 extensions but are not all needed
for horde and don't even have them all in etc/php/extensions.ini
You only must have what is mentioned in horde/docs/INSTALL
With pear I just install pear install -o Log Mail Mail_Mime DB Date File
pear -d preferred_state=beta install -a Services_Weather
from the docs/INSTALL and then go through ALL the different apps
included in test.php and install everything that is missing. Just get
rid of the red ink;)
I also have installed:
Really the above is just a reference and the good stuff is in
horde/docs/INSTALL and probably on one of the wiki's but I don't have a
good luck, I think you will find it rather uncomplicated although as
this is your first you will want to read all the configuration files
and their comments.
