Accepted Answer

You would probably want to use a PHP syntax file such as: http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1571

FWIW: Personally I am enjoying learning vim at the moment but still prefer netbeans for PHP development because it has many features that I need, such as automatic scp to a remote server and remote debugging with XDebug.

you really should be using Tobias Schlitt's VIP, which is "VIM integration for PHP, including the phpDocumentor for VIM (PDV) script. The main component is a VIM file type plugin, which configures a lot of VIM enhancements for more comfortable PHP editing in VIM.".

I've been using it since before its name changed from PDV to VIP and it really is superb.

You can get it off github at http://github.com/tobyS/vip
