php-pear problem behind proxy

For setting proxy in php-pear
pear config-set http_proxy http://yourproxy:yourportnumber

for example form my setting 

pear config-set http_proxy

If you have user name and password then do the following
pear config-set http_proxy http://username:password@yourproxy:80 

Set correct path for pear 
First, check where PEAR installs .php files: 
$ pear config-get php_dir
Now it's time to find which configuration file is used by
your PHP installation. On command line, execute:
$ php --ini
Now check PHP's include_path setting on command line:

$ php -c /path/to/php.ini -r 'echo get_include_path()."\n";'

Modifying php.ini

To get PEAR working properly, you need to adjust PHP’s include_path. After you found php.ini, open it in an editor.
Search for the line include_path.
Now that you found it, you probably will see a semicolon ; at the beginning. This means the line is a comment. Add a new line below it.
In this line, write: 
The result should look like that:
; Unix
; Windows
