Thanks for the link ambytiousone!
Mindzai, I've tried yum, I've tried "lynx -source http://pear.php.net/go-pear | php", I've tried to install it through a script which tells me I don't have access to the folders to install them, I chmod them to give all rights, still nothing, tech support @ 1and1 didn't understand it either. I thought it was because I was a noob, but it's probably just 1and1's server settings :-\
I haven't tried ambytiousone way yet, but I'm sure I'll run into open_basedir problems when I do because of Plesk. I'm going to take a break from it all before I go Insane :-))
1and1 got back to me with this...
I have just looked over this case and it seems that the problem is a scripting error. Unfortunately we do not support scripting as this is out of our realm of technical support.
Scripting error? The error comes when I try to install it with yum. :-\
