I think I am close to getting PHP Eclipse and CVSNT working together, but I am missing something. I am using XP Pro SP3. I have WAMP server with Apache 2.2.11, MySQL 5.1.33, and PHP 5.2.9-2 running without any troubles. I have Zend PHPEclispe 22.214.171.1249 (Eclipse 3.5.0.I2009). This appears to be working as I have a project that runs in the Zend debugger and Eclipse browser. I have March Hare CVSNT 2.5.04.3510 running. I see two services, cvslock and cvsnt in the XP services list. I've added two environment variables: CVS_RSH=C:\Program Files\CVSNT\extnt.exe and CVSROOT=C:\CVSROOT. The command line: cvs init -f -a MyProjects seems to have initialized the directory indicated by CVSROOT. I get this message: cvs init: Repository MyProjects <C:\CVSROOT> initialized I have this directory structure after init: C:\ CVSROOT CVSROOT CVS Emptydir In my Apache server I've created an alias http://localhost/CVSROOT to C:/CVSROOT http://wiki.eclipse.org/CVS_FAQ#Server_Issues At this web page I found some info. In extnt.ini I have the following: [CVSROOT] protocol=sspi hostname=localhost directory=/CVSROOT [cvs.cvsnt.org] protocol=sserver hostname=cvs.cvsnt.org directory=/usr/local/cvs This command: cvs -d :ext:. at CVSROOT:/CVSROOT/MyProjects version also cvs -d :ext:. at CVSROOT:/CVSROOT/CVSROOT version also cvs -d :ext:. at CVSROOT:/CVSROOT version Produces this message: [extnt] Unknown response 'error 0 /CVSROOT: no such repository What am I doing wrong? I do not understand the syntax or parameters in these phrases: :ext:. at CVSROOT:/CVSROOT/MyProjects Or :pserver:anonymous at dev.eclipse.org:/cvsroot/eclipse This one is an example from Eclipse. I assume that anonymous is a userid and that . (period) substitutes for the absence of a userid? I assume that wherever I see a URL in an example that I should substitute localhost for my local Apache server? According to the directions I should be able to paste the following into the Eclipse host name and voila! :ext:. at CVSROOT:/CVSROOT/MyProjects But I get this: Error validating location: "Unknown response received from cvs server: " Looks familiar. What am I doing wrong? I have Shu-Wai Chow's book, "PHP Eclipse: A User Guide", and tried his pserver instructions with no better results. He indicates the necessity of establishing a userid and password in CVSNT that is the same as the XP userid and password. The command he uses on page 163 did not work and my attempts at using pserver with Eclipse have worked no better than my attempts using ext. I get this message: Error validating location: "Could not connect to :pserver:. at localhost:/CVSROOT: I/O exception occurred: Connection refused: /CVSROOT: no such repository" What am I doing wrong?
