This is an old revision of the document!
The preferred method is using the pear channel, but all methods are documented below.
Using the PEAR Channel
Using a PEAR channel first requires the systems PEAR installation to discover it, so this only has to be done once.
$ pear channel-discover doc.php.net
Next, install PhD. At the time of this writing the latest version of PhD is in beta so the -beta tag is used below:
$ pear install doc.php.net/phd-beta
And for upgrading:
$ pear upgrade doc.php.net/phd-beta
If by chance you already installed PhD by other means then be sure to uninstall that version first.
Using PEAR directly
Installing by using a specific tarball is possible too, but is not recommended.
$ pear install http://doc.php.net/phd/PhD-0.4.1.tgz
Getting the code:
$ cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org/repository co phd
Install and run from CVS:
$ cd phd $ pear install -f package.xml
Alternately you can (although not recommended) run PhD directly from CVS, without needing to install it. The same holds true if using the tarball, because all the phd command really does is execute “php build.php” so:
$ cd phd $ php build.php -d/path/to/phpdoc/.manual.xml
