Hi,

Is it possible, and if there is documentation, can anyone point me to it, to setup eclipse on my Windows 11 machine so that I can edit files on a development server running on a different machine (my LAN testing server: Ubuntu LAMP) and get Eclipse to see the development server, by IP or by the host name webdev.local (already working) as the url to run?

I cannot seem to change the URL or add a different web application to open with

https:// webdev.local/[project location].

I cannot even edit a lot of the fields such that I am wondering if Eclipse is hanging when I try to change things in preferences or under the run configure runtime menu items.

Am I missing something?

Yes, it is possible to set up Eclipse to edit files on a development server running on a different machine. You can do this by creating a remote connection to the server and then configuring Eclipse to use this connection when running the project.

I have no problem editing the files. They are available on the networked mapped Z: drive. What I can't seem to do is make the project run on https://webdev.local or other domain name mapped to the Apache server running on the other machine. It only seems to be possible to use https://localhost/[project name].

I'm trying to figure out how to have the project use a folder on the network mapped drive Z, and run the project on the remote machine's Apache server, https://webdev.local. I could use SSH if it would matter for PHP error checking and such, but shouldn't I still want it to run the remote domain names ( like https://webdev.local)?
