Note: The PDT is not compatible with MyEclipse 9.x and 10.0; at the moment, you must use MyEclipse release 10.1 or later, and then follow the instructions below. The milestone release, 10.0.1 will also work - for more details on the milestone release, please click here. While following the instructions below will allow you to install the PDT into MyEclipse, the PHP editors will not work unless you are using the 10.1 release or higher (or 10.0.1). If you have problems with PHP after following this procedure, and are using the 10.0.1 milestone release, please ensure that you have installed all updates for 10.0.1
The tools in the Eclipse IDE PHP (PDT)
Bring up the MyEclipse Configuration Centre by clicking on MyEclipse->MyEclipse Configuration Center
, then click on the Software tab.
For Windows developers
Then click on the "Apply 1 change" button in the Pending Changes pane (see below, if there are multiple changes in the Software Updates Available pane and you don't want to apply them all).
A wizard will take you through the rest of this change and will ask you to restart MyEclipse to complete the change. When MyEclipse restarts, go to the Configuration Center, Software tab, again.
For all developers
Search for "Eclipse PHP" in the "Browse Software" section, by just typing it in the text box and waiting. Look for the "Eclipse PHP IDE (PDT)" entry, under "Languages", and select it, right click and click "Add to Profile...".
The PDT plug-in will appear in the "Software Updates" pane. If there are pending changes, other than the Eclipse PHP IDE, that you don't want to install just yet, you will need to deselect them, if they are in the "Software Updates" subsection, or remove them from your profile, if they are in the "Managed Changes" subsection. To removed managed changes, go to the MySoftware pane, scroll to the plug-in that you don't want installed, right click it and select "Remove" (similar to the way the IED was removed, above).
Now click the Apply button in the "Pending Changes" pane.
A wizard will take you through the rest of this change and will ask you to restart MyEclipse to complete the change. When MyEclipse restarts, leave the Configuration Center and the PHP tools will be available.
