    error :org/eclipse/php/internal/ui/wizards/NameGroup

    please help .

  2. Nice tutorial, but I’m missing the part on HOW to work with SVN/Zend/Eclipse.

    This is merely a ‘how to install’-tutorial

  3. done with all the steps but at de end stuck with an error while creating a new project using zend , it says
    An error has occurred. See error log for more details.
    Do help:)

  4. Above error with 7_1 but with 8_0 of zend I got “An error has occurred. See error log for more details.
    org/eclipse/php/internal/ui/wizards/NameGroup” exact place.

  5. Great article , I have tried all the steps exactly but keep running into error at very first step after installation all done. Project creation wizard. When I choose zend frame work project nothing happens. If I choose new project , then from the New Project wizard then expand the php then double click on the Zend Framework I get the error as “An error has occurred. See error log for more details.

  6. Hi Vedran,
    i like the post.
    i want to develop a music website as PHP and zend, but i confuse a problem,
    Zendframework support good that ?

  7. Greetings Vedran,

    can you tell me if these steps are working nowadays??
    i tried, but i can’t create a zend framework project.. any other item works fine. I need to create the project with zf?

  8. After installing the Subversive SVN Team Provider Plugin and restarting, the Subversive Overview page appears.

    It seems you are missing a step – How do I get the SVN Connector window to appear?
