Installing OAuth PECL extension for XAMPP beta on Mac

Recently I ran into problems when installing OAuth PECL extension for XAMPP beta on Mac OS-X. Running pecl from the command line gave the following error:

bash-3.2$ /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/bin/pecl

Notice: unserialize(): Error at offset 250 of 1301 bytes in Config.php on line 1050
ERROR: The default config file is not a valid config file or is corrupted.

Luckily, the solution to this problem is pretty simple. First, delete pear.conf by making a backup in your XAMPP setup:

bash-3.2$ mv pear.conf pear.conf.backup

This way PECL will create a new and correct config file when running the command again. Obviously, XAMPP ships with a corrupt pear.conf.

Then, install the OAuth extension as usual:

bash-3.2$ sudo /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/bin/pecl install oauth

Libraries have been installed in:

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
   - add LIBDIR to the `DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
     during execution

See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
more information, such as the ld(1) and manual pages.

Build complete.
Don't forget to run 'make test'.
