php.ini include_path set to '.:/usr/local/lib/php'
if include_path is set in php.ini then it is ignored except for informational purposes; phpinfo reports what include_path in php.ini contains but scripts cannot find files. Default include_path works. Setting include_path via http.conf php_value works.

Are you sure your php.ini is even used by PHP ?
Where is it located in your system?

Yes...for example, I changed include_path to '.:/usr/local/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php/pear' in php.ini. phpinfo faithfully reported the change but files contained in the path could not be found.

Here's a link to a broken web server:
It's the Horde project test page to determine if the functionality is present necessary to support horde. At the bottom of the page note that PEAR is broken. Yet the phpinfo link at the top of the page shows the include_path is '.:/usr/local/lib/php'. I can fix the problem by removing include_path from php.ini and depending on the default path.

Works for me just fine. 

Is that path readable by the user the Apache runs as?

Is there PEAR.php in /usr/local/lib/php/ ? You must include the directory that contains this file, so if /usr/local/lib/php/ contains pear/, you should make it

set_ini( 'include_path' , '.:/usr/local/lib/php/pear' )

Let me emphasize that the problem is not that PEAR is broken. The problem is that the include_path is being ignored if and only if it is set in the php.ini file. If I comment out the include_path in php.ini then the master include_path (which is also '.:/usr/local/lib/php') is used and pathless includes and PEAR work just fine.

can you put echo ini_get( 'include_path' ) somewhere in that script?
 [2001-05-23 15:02 UTC] reitsmac at denison dot edu
Yes. 755. Most includes are in the same directory. So with the broken include_path reading '.:/usr/local/lib/php' scripts cannot read but have no trouble with ./

I have added echo ini_get( 'include_path' ) after the PEAR section of

include_path works, administrators don't.
