pear php script errors

see my accepted solution
which was about uploading a file for attachment
that works the file gets uploaded
but my script I is failing with
Warning: include_once(/PEAR/Mail.php) [function.include-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/fhlinux198/i/ on line 10

Warning: include_once() [function.include]: Failed opening '/PEAR/Mail.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/share/pear-php5') in /home/fhlinux198/i/ on line 10

Warning: include_once(/PEAR/Mail/mime.php) [function.include-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/fhlinux198/i/ on line 11

Warning: include_once() [function.include]: Failed opening '/PEAR/Mail/mime.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/share/pear-php5') in /home/fhlinux198/i/ on line 11

Fatal error: Class 'Mail_mime' not found in /home/fhlinux198/i/ on line 85

no it means you included the PEAR files the wrong way.
include_once 'Mail.php';
include_once 'Mail/mime.php';

PHP will go through the include_path and try to find Mail.php as

noi still getting the warnings and then fatal error class 'mail_mime' not found
I don't think its installed as its a subdomain of a reseller account at fasthosts
I dont have shell access so I cannot install it
If you donÄt need to use the PEAR installation of your hoster.

I dont think I can its a fasthost account and I found out pear is installed because I dit the following
require_once 'System.php';  
require_once 'PEAR.php';

phpinfo ();

And I get
bool(true) bool(true)
which means pear is installed
but I found out pear is installed with php
so I did

/* $path = "/usr/local/bin/pear";
set_include_path(get_include_path() . PATH_SEPARATOR . $path); */
require_once 'System.php';  
require_once 'PEAR.php';
require_once 'Mail.php';
require_once 'Mail/mime.php';
phpinfo ();

and I get
bool(true) bool(true) bool(false) bool(false)
so how can I fix that
You can't fix this. PEAR is installed, but not Mail_Mime. You need to put those files/Classes via ssh/ftp/.. to the server in your own directory or use your own PEAR-instllation as descibed in the pear manual
IanThAuthor Commented:
why though if pear is installed why do I get a fatal class error on Mail_mime
I have another sendmail script that uses mail() and that works on the server with no problem without include_once
so the path is correct. It just doesn't work with attachments as the fifth element in mail() is set by fasthost to be a username on their servers

mail($emailadd, $subject, $text, "From: $fromadd", "-f".$fromadd );
where normally it would be
mail($emailadd, $subject, $text, "From: $fromadd", $attachment );
Mail_mie is not part of the default pear installation and also has nothing to do with the php build in function mail. If you need attachemnt use or

fixed myself by getting rid of pear and using mail()
$fileatt = ''; // Path to the file
$fileatt_type = "application/octet-stream"; // File Type
$fileatt_name = "test"; // Filename that will be used for the file as the attachment
$fromadd = ''; // used for the fifth element in fasthost
$email_from = ''; // Who the email is from
$email_subject = "testing"; // The Subject of the email
$email_txt = "testing with attachment"; // Message that the email has in it

$email_to = $_POST['email address']; // Who the email is too

$headers = "From: ".$email_from;

$file = fopen($fileatt,'rb');
$data = fread($file,filesize($fileatt));

$semi_rand = md5(time());
$mime_boundary = "==Multipart_Boundary_x{$semi_rand}x";

$headers .= "\nMIME-Version: 1.0\n" .
"Content-Type: multipart/mixed;\n" .
" boundary=\"{$mime_boundary}\"";

$email_message .= $email_txt;
// --------------------------Do not edit below this line--------------------------
$text = "<br>\nResults from form:\n\n";
$space = ' ';
$line = '
foreach ($_POST as $key => $value)
if ($req == '1')
if ($value == '')
{echo "$key is empty. Click the back button to return to the form";die;}
$j = strlen($key);
if ($j >= 20)
{echo "Name of form element $key cannot be longer than 20 characters";die;}
$j = 20 - $j;

for ($i = 1; $i <= $j; $i++)
{$space .= ' ';}
$value = str_replace('\n', "$line", $value);
$conc = "{$key}:$space{$value}$line<br>";
$text .= $conc;
$space = ' ';

$email_message .= $text;
$email_message .= "This is a multi-part message in MIME format.\n\n" .

$data = chunk_split(base64_encode($data));
