Downloads and Installation
You should have Java, Apache running PHP, and MySQL installed locally. If you are running Windows and
do not have these components installed, consider following the wampp-based instructions on the PHPEclipse site:

. If you already have a development web server/database environment, follow
these basic instructions.
Download mirrors for Eclipse are available at the Eclipse Foundation website:
Download the latest version of the “Eclipse SDK” package for your operating system. The Eclipse
SDK package has the complete IDE and the Java JDT. Uncompressing the SDK creates a directory called
eclipse. Move it to your favorite applications directory.
Download the PHPEclipse plugin, available on Sourceforge at http://sourceforge.net/project/
After unzipping the plugin, place all decompressed files in the plugins directory of the eclipse
directory. At a minimum, you will need these two packages for PHP development.
Additional features may require other software installations, as noted.
