- One way to get PHP on your machine in Eclipse is to go to the Eclipse download page at eclipse.org and then find the Eclipse IDE for PHP Developers. Since we started this course, installing the basic Eclipse installation for Java Developers, I'll show you how to modify Eclipse to make sure you have the appropriate extensions to work with PHP. Again you don't need to download the PHP version of Eclipse. It's just a regular version of Eclipse with the PHP plugins installed.
So we'll go to Help, Install additional software in Eclipse and then under here I'm going to select what is the current version of Eclipse right now, which is Luna at the time of this recording. I'm going to wait for all of the options to load and then I'm going to expand the Programming Languages section. So under Programming Languages what you're looking for are all of the PHP options. So we mainly need the PHP Development Tools or PDT.
I'm going to select that and click Next, and click Next again. And I'm going to accept the license agreement but make sure you read through it and do agree to it before you click that you accept the license agreement terms and then click Finish. Once the updates are installed, you'll need to restart Eclipse. So I'm going to hit Yes to do that now. So now I've installed the PHP extension and I'm going to hide the Welcome screen, and I'm back inside Eclipse.
So once you're done either installing the PHP version of Eclipse from the Eclipse website or adding on to your current installation of Eclipse, you're ready to write PHP code.
