Maybe I assumed wrongly.

I thought that once I installed eclipse (indigo) and pdt, that then I could save a small "test.php" file under a new "Test" PHP project, then click on the "test.php" file

and then click on "run as" then click on "PHP Web Page"

and auto-magically, eclipse would launch an internal eclipse web browser (and possibly an internal eclipse web server ) and feed me my "test.php" file as a webpage on the internal web browser.

Didn't happen. So then I thought:

Well, I'll click on "test.php" then click on "Run as" then click on "PHP Script"

And auto-magically, Eclipse/pdt will feed me some sort of result by running it through some sort of internal bundled eclipse php runtime environment.

Didn't happen.

Can anybody tell me if I assumed too much, did something wrong, and if I assumed anything correctly at all?

Thanks for your help.

from my own attempts to get the eclipse pdt to work for me i have worked out for myself that before you can run a php script to debug it you should select Run->Debug Configurations and work through that dialogue.

hope that's useful.
