Last time I used EasyEclipse for PHP was on 2008, when I was trying to finish my Master IT project. Since the project was using OOP a lot, so I needed a strong IDE rather than Notepad++.
STEP 1: Installation
Before doing the Eclipse installation, you must have JDK in your machine.
To download installer;
After installation, better point your workspace to your web root. In my case I’m using XAMPP, and it’s normally at C:/xampp/htdocs/.
STEP 2: Setting server preferences.
Go to Windows-> Preference. Get to the PHPEclipse Web Development->Project Defaults. Provide localhost address, and the web root. Normally when you’re using XAMPP; localhost address = http://localhost, and document root = C:/xampp/htdocs . Click apply and OK.
STEP 3: Creating new PHP project.
Create a new project by going to File->New->Project. And opt for PHP project.
Create a new PHP file by right clicking the Bookshop project->New->PHP file .
Provide the PHP file name.
Write the PHP code in the upper editor, and you’ll see the output immediately in the bottom browser. On the left is the file explorer.
Any code error automatically will appear in the code editor (underlined in red).
