Eclipse and PDT installed
PHP installed
PHP executable path set up in eclipse (c:\php)
Just want to run simple hello world scirpt without setting up web server.

When I Run As - PHP CLI application nothing happens.

I would expect it to do like java and find the php.exe and spit the output into the console. I can run the script from the command prompt c:\php\php.exe helloworld.php fine. Can't I do this in eclipse?

Why is this so hard?

Thanks

If you go into Windows->Preferences->PHP->PHP Executables, do you have a PHP Executable set up? If not, add one there and then it should work. Good luck.

look for lines that starts with LoadModule php... There propably is configuration files/directories named mods or something like that, start from there.

You could also check output from php -r 'phpinfo();' | grep php and compare lines to phpinfo(); from web server.
To run php interactively

so you can paste/write code to console run it with:

php -a

To make it parse file and output to console:

php -f file.php

Parse file and output to another file:

php -f file.php > reults.html

It's worth adding that PHP from version 5.4 onwards is able to run a web server on its own. You can do it by running this code in a folder which you want to serve the pages from:

$ php -S localhost:8000
