PHP Web Hosting

Hi everyone,

I am new to PHP and I am trying to learn about using PHP to connect to
a MySQL database using PEAR modules. My current web hosting provider
compiles the PEAR modules into PHP so the code in many of the books I
have been using will not work. So I have 3 questions:

1. Is my web hosting company doing something unusual?
2. Can anyone recommend a web hosting company that uses PHP5, MySQL and
PEAR in a Linux environmnet?
3. Can anyone recommend an online tutorial or a book that discusses PHP
coding with PEAR in a compiled environment?

Thanks very much!

No. However, you can always install your own PEAR modules in
your own web space, if you don't administer the server. The PEAR
installation documentation explains how.

Hi there,

If you are looking for a good php hosting provider, have a look at:

http://hosting.woohoow.net

This site contains up to date links to today's best selling hosting
providers.
Php hosting can be free, but most of the time you will have to deal with
slow and unreliable servers.

Definitely have a look at hosting.woohoow.net.
Competition is high, and prices are sharp.
