Install problem with go-pear on a shared host

I am trying to install pear on a shared server/host
following the instructions from:
<http://uk.builder.com/architecture/web/0,39026570,20283197,00.htm>

So I made a subdir on my site like:
http://www.urlname.urlextension/pear/
to install the pear into by running
go-pear.php fromthat subdir "pear"
But I got:
<kwoot>
Error
mkdir failed: /www/htdocs/urlname/pear/bin

Unable to create Binaries directory /www/htdocs/urlname/pear/bin.
Run this script as root or pick another location.
</kwoot>

My hostprovider tells me that
he doesnt want those foreign bin directory outside my root.

Anyone any idea how to tackle this problem on a shared host/server ?

Does anyone know a provider that can handle this problem?

I am not very interested in big memories/dataflows but
more in possibilities to program ...

TIA

Change pear folder permissions so web server user can write to it. You can
use an FTP client (it's often called CHMOD).

I did do that but not enough.

After I gave owner _and_ other _all_ privileges
it worked ....

Thx for your comment !

After that I got a new problem that
my provider forbids me to use that directory
(message of system forgotten ....:-(

So I come back to my original message/question:

Who knows a host where I can use
an existing PHP (4.x?) install _with_ pear ?

I looked for installing pear on my own computer,
but I understand that I should have PHP on my own computer which
demands that I run a server .....

Because of historical reasons I use Windows at home but
I dont want to get too deap in that Msoft stuff.

So I feel I need to go to a LAMP combination
only to use PEAR.....

I hope there are some practical outroads out of this conclusion ?

Can anyone suggest something ?
