I'm new to Eclipse and looking to get some guidance on how to set it up specifically for web development. I'm setting up Eclipse on a Linux machine and I'll be developing in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP. I've tried searching on Google and the forums and can't seem to find any advice as to a setup specific to web development. On the downloads page, I see an Eclipse for PHP Developers which I'm guessing I'd need, but then I'm confused by all of the other packages. From what I've read online, I've heard of a WTP package but can't seem to find anything on the downloads page about this.

So if anyone can walk me through setting up Eclipse for the above-mentioned languages, I'd greatly appreciate it. I used Eclipse a number of years back for C++ development and really liked it then. So I'm excited to start using it for web development. Thanks again for any help!

Just pick a package that seems reasonably close to what you want, e.g.,
the web tools one or the PHP one, and then use Help->Install New
Software... to install anything else that looks interesting or useful.

If you're not so much a Java guy, use the Eclipse for PHP Developers.
Eclipse IDE for JEE Developers is more for those writing Java-based
solutions. If you decide you want something more later, you can install
it in your existing download (as Ed points out).
