First the Status:

- I have Apachee and MySQL and PHP installed and working in c:\webdev\wwwroot\
- I installed this months ago and then got off on another project... so it sat there till now...
- Now I have installed Eclipse on that PC and it is setup with 'workspace' at c:\workspace\
- I want to be able to use Eclipse to code PHP web pages...

Now My Questions:
- Should I tell Eclipse to use c:\webdev\wwwroot\ as the "work space" for PHP development?
- Or will this just create a 'Project Folder" with a bunch of project files in C:\webdev\wwwroot\ ???

I want to be able to save my PHP pages such that I can see them with my browser pointed at http://localhost

Thanks for any help on setting this up...

Yes, that will just create a 'Project Folder" with a bunch of project
files in C:\webdev\wwwroot\. However, you can add an external folder to
your project i.e. a folder which is not located under the workspace
directory. (Expand the 'Advanced' button in the New Folder Wizard)

Follow-up question:
- I have my PHP Project created at c:\workspace\myProject
- But I want to store all PHP Source files outside the Eclipse Project at c:\webdev\wwwroot\
- because I have Apache Web Server running on my development machine and can test the PHP pages there
- I right clicked my project in Eclipse and then clicked New | Folder | Advanced...
- Then checked the option "Link to alternate location (Linked Folder) and made it c:\webdev\wwwroot\

BUT when I create a simple - echo "Hello World" file - in c:\webdev\wwwroot\
.. and then Click Run > Run As > PHP WebPage
.. I get... "Webpage cannot be found"
.. And I can see the path Eclipse attempted to open was http://localhost/MyPhpProject/wwwroot/Index.php
.. Instead of http://localhost/Index.php
.. And if I edit the path to http://localhost/Index.php... it works!
How can I get Eclipse to look in the correct Folder/Directory when I click Run > Run As > PHP Webpage
???
Thanks for any help.

- Look around in Window > Preferences which lets you configure the url
pattern used by a new launch config
- Or this could be a bug in PDT. You should post this in PDT forum.
