My colleague created these steps for installing on WAMP. He links to a couple of tutorials on installing PEAR. Hope this helps!
Steps for installing Archon locally on WAMP
Make sure PHP 5.2.9-2 is installed on WAMP (if not, install through the WAMP PHP interface -->PHP-->Versions-->'Get More') Once installed, make sure 5.2.9-2 is selected for use in WAMP.
Download Archon and put the Archon folder and the install.php file into c:\wamp\www\
Follow the steps here:http://www.truecms.net.au/blog/mdb2/installing-pear-mdb2-wamp-server-windows-7-vista-xp-32-64-bit
Still in command line, follow the steps on this page: http://www.archon.org/mdb2.html
(step one will prompt cmd to tell you that pear MDB2 is already installed--for step 2, use the mysql version.
Check the phpinfo() page and under the "Configuration: PHP Core" table, make sure the following is listed as an include_path: ".;c:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.9-2\pear." If not, use the WAMP php.ini interface to add the line
include_path=".;c:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.9-2\pear" under the "Paths and Directories" heading.
Open c:\wamp\www\Archon\config.inc.php and set the following variables:
$_ARCHON->db->ServerType = 'MySQL';
$_ARCHON->db->ServerAddress = 'localhost';
$_ARCHON->db->Login = 'root'; (Unless you chose a different mysql login)
$_ARCHON->db->Password = '' (empty single quotes);
$_ARCHON->db->DatabaseName = 'archon'; (No caps in mysql database names is preferable)
In WAMP, launch phpMyAdmin and on the homepage look for 'Create a new database' and type in 'archon' (no quotes) and click 'Create.'
In a web browser, go to http://localhost/archon
and check for any errors. Then follow the 12-step Archon set-up process.
