    The only time you would need to install PHP locally is if you intend to serve the content from that machine or if you want to run some PHP code in a standalone fashion. If you are just coding stuff to be used on a remote webserver then there is no need.

    I cannot answer your question about Eclipse - I have only ever used that for Java. For PHP, HTML and CSS I prefer Bluefish editor - it seems a lot lighter than Eclipse.

    Happy coding

    Re: Eclipse php development

    it's called the PDT
    http://www.eclipse.org/pdt/downloads/
    between did you downloaded eclipse from the site ( the latest called 'indigo' ) ?
    or you get it from Ubuntu Software Center ?
    Ubuntu Software Center doesn't has the latest eclipse
    plus I recommend that you get it from the eclipse site , extract it and your done
    you can get eclipse with php http://www.eclipse.org/pdt/downloads/
    or add the plugin to indigo

    If you've got the plugin installed into Eclipse you should be ok to go. The version you get from the Ubuntu Software Center is Indigo, but with a different set of plugins installed to the version you download.

    You would still need to install PHP locally so that you can develop and test before uploading to the "live" server.

    If the plugin installed correctly, it should work ok.

    To do PHP development, you would really need to have all the tools installed locally.
