I downloaded the 1.0 Stable Build
pdt-all-in-one-incubation-S20070910_RC1-linux-gtk.tar.gz and extracted it as
root. I changed into the ./eclipse directory and ran "./eclipse -clean". When
opening a new project, I see no references to PHP, no do I see anything about
mentioned under Windows->Preferences, as some of the online documentation
indicated there whould be. I did not find any installation instructions, so
from links on the Eclipse web site, I ended up on
In step 3 "Now add the PDT project's download site:", I try to add a new
remote site with the give URL. However, I get the message that it is already
configured for this URL with the title "PDT Updates". Since this is already
shown in the screenshot, I think is logical to assume that a new one needs to
be created named "PHP Development Tool (PDT)". However, I cannot unless I
leave off the training slash, but that seems not to be the correct method.
So, I assume "PDT Updates" is the correct one.
Step 4 says 'Check as well "Callisto Discovery Site"' - There is no entry for
this. What do I check here?
The only thing I can check is "PDT Updates", so I do and click "Finish" and
follow the prompts. The installation appears to go through successfully and I
am prompted to restart Eclipse, which I do. However, after the automatic
restart, I still find no references to PHP. So I shut it down complete and
restart it with "./eclipse -clean". Still, I find no references to php.
Although the documentation says there should be references to PHP, I open up a
new project of type "General". When I try to edit this file, I see no syntax
coloring/highlighting, etc that I other IDEs provide for specific languages
Based on all of this, it seems that the PHP plugin was not installed. I am at
a loss to figure out how to get it installed correctly. Any help is
