This is a howto about setting up a proffessional PHP IDE using Eclipse by hand. I’ll be using Eclipse PDT
for PHP support. The PDT project provides a PHP Development Tools
framework for the Eclipse platform. This project encompasses all
development components necessary to develop PHP and facilitate
extensibility. It leverages the existing Web Tools Project in providing
developers with PHP capabilities. We will have in the end features like
subversion support, edit remote files, database development, debugging and more.
