Hello,

I used PHPStorm few times and i was wondering how to replicate a simple (but so important) task in Eclipse.

1. i have existing files and folders on my remote server
2. i would like to create a new project and import those files and folders (from remote server) to my local disk (as local project)
3. next i would like to modify local files
4. upload or sync only modified files to remote server

I tried to create a blank PHP or WEB project and to import remote files using RSE plugin.
A. in this case import does not import files/folder into my local project.

as you can see in project explorer, there is not index.html or robots.txt file... only empty files from scratch PHP project.

A. So what did i do wrong ?
B. how to exclude folder or files from project explorer side to by sync with remote server (to avoid hidden files or anything from eclipse to be sync to remote server) ?

thx

I recommend that you try the new Synchronized PHP Projects feature that was introduced with Oxygen.1 (the latest official release on the Eclipse download site from September 2017).

Synchronized projects does a better job with file synching. It's faster and with conflict detection if the same remote project is used by several users. It also supports exclusion filters.

You can import your remote project as a synchronized project using the File > New > Projects > Synchronized PHP Project. Note that there is another generic wizard with name "Synchronized Project". Make sure you use the one with "PHP" in its name.

You can find documentation on synchronized projects here: https://help.eclipse.org/oxygen/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.ptp.doc.user%2Fhtml%2Fsync.html

This documentation is about C/C++ synchronized project, but most of it is valid for PHP too. We've just adapted the same feature for PHP.

Download the latest (Oxygen.1) version of the Eclipse for PHP Developers package. The Synchronized PHP Projects is included in this package.

The issue is that i have NEON 3 (v4.6.3) installed. When i'm checking Oxygen, is based on Eclipse 4.7.1 framework, so i wonder why Eclipse framework does not update itself if there is new update.
I will update Eclipse framework.

Thx for the info
