Well, I went ahead and did the manual installation of Propel, Creole, and Phing. It worked like a charm. I did even more reading into the pear and found out that I was having some wierd confilicts with paths in phing that I didn’t know about. If I had better knowledge of how to use phing I never would have had that problem. The manual installation is what actually showed me how to do the pear install right. So, now I get to move on with my next project using propel. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
