Slackware 10.1 + Information Resource Manager (IRM)

I have recently performed a fresh install of Slackware 10.1 (no issues there). I am trying to get Information Resource Manager ( going on this box to keep track of the many systems in my charge.

I have downloaded and untarred the tarball from SourceForge. I have read the install documents and I have MySQL+Apache+PHP running and working. When I go to my server via the web to the "admin.php" page (as instructed to do so in the Install for IRM), I am greeted with this error:


pear install -o MDB

pear command).")?> pear command, you should install the basic PEAR system as packaged by your PHP or Linux distribution. PEAR is the PHP Extension and Application Repository, and provides a set of basic services for the installation of PHP libraries such as MDB.") ?>

MDB.php in one of the directories listed above. If your MDB.php file is not in any of the above locations, or no include path is shown above, you will need to configure one in your system's php.ini file. Unfortunately, the location for this file varies between Operating Systems and distributions, so you may have to consult your system documentation or use a file searching command to find it.") ?>

php.ini file, you will need to edit it using a text editor and modify the include_path parameter (search for it in the php.ini file) to include the necessary paths.") ?>
I have installed MDB as per the first line above (par install -o MDB). I have also tried their sugesstion of moving the MDB.php file and MDB directory to my install root, to no avail.

I have tried altering my include_path in php.ini. I have never done this before perhaps someone could tell me if this is correct:
; Paths and Directories ;

; UNIX: "/path1:/path2"  
include_path = ".:/php/includes:/var/www/htdocs/irm"
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Fixed that above problem....I had the PHP module installed but I did not activate it in httpd.conf! My bad!

But now I have a new problem...

I used to be able to get to the php pages on my site. Unfortunately with PHP now activated in httpd.conf my connections are refused! I can get to the pages if I use elinks on the server. But the connection is refused when I try to get to the pages from a different machine. There is no firewall running and now I am stumped

I can get to my server from a different machine, and I can see the Apache test page. I cannot however from a different machine run any PHP pages.
**End EDIT**
Again any help would be appreciated.
