Can't create project from existing directory [message #1727131] Sat, 19 March 2016 20:31

I just moved my project folders to another computer, opened Eclipse (Luna), set the workspace to the parent folder (the PHP Projects tab is empty), and selected File > New > PHP Project, but when I click "Create project at existing location (from existing source)" and choose the folder (annoying that it blanks out the path), it says "The specified external location already exists."... uh, yah I chose to create the project at an existing location...

It also says "If a project is created in this location, the wizard will automatically try to detect existing sources and configure the buildpath appropriately", but the Back, Next, and Finish buttons are grayed out; if I type in the name of the folder in the "Project name" field, it shows error "Cannot create project content in workspace". What is going on?!

Even if I close Eclipse, delete the .settings folder and the .builtpath, and .project files in the folder and try again, same exact issues. If I just empty the contents of the folder entirely and restart again in Eclipse, no difference.

This seems completely contradictory and I'm seeing no way to just create a project in an existing folder with source in it.
