Netbeans is a free and open-source IDE for developing desktop, mobile, and web applications. It allows you to create applications in a variety of languages, including Java, HTML5, PHP, C++, etc. It is compatible with Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and other UNIX-based operating systems.

Netbeans without PHP support

You can see that we don’t have any option to start a PHP project. PHP plugin is not there in the list.



Steps to enable PHP support in Netbeans

Step 1: Go to Tools->Plugins.



Step 2: Make sure that the Netbeans Distribution update centre is turned on in the Settings tab.



Step 3: Check the URL mentioned for Netbeans Distribution. It should contain “https”, not “http”. If the URL contains “http” then change it to “https” by clicking on the Edit button.



Step 4: Go to the Available Plugins tab and click on Check for Newest button. You will see the PHP plugin in the list.



Step 5: Click on the Install button. The installer will ask you to accept the license agreement. Choose PHP Editor in the plugins dropdown and click on Install.



Step 6: Wait for the download to complete and restart your IDE. Now you will be able to see the PHP option at the time of creating a new project.
