I have a clean Eclipse Java SDK. I would like to make it suitable for developing PHP applications. So I need a PHP IDE plugin (or something like that). How could I install it from the Eclipse environment?

To install PDT (PHP Development Tools) for PHP development environment is better in Eclipse. The following are the steps to install PDT in Eclipse (I'm considering version 3.7 (Indigo)):

  1. Open Eclipse (in my case Eclipse Indigo).
  2. Go to Help --> Install New Software...
  3. Expand the "Work with" drop down and select "Indigo -".
  4. Expand "Programming Languages" from the list.
  5. Check PHP Development Tools (PDT) SDK Feature.
  6. Click "Next >" at the bottom and follow the further instruction of Eclipse.
  7. After successful installation of PDT: Go to Window --> Preferences and see the list as PHP at left panel.
