and don’t know what it is about simple things that hackers find so complicated 😀

so how do you import an existing project into eclipse?

in older/almost any version of eclipse: THERE IS NO IMPORT 😀 (!? WHAT? YES THERE IS… but it might not WORK :-D)

1. move your project (usually a folder with all the source files) into your workspace (in my case it’s /var/www)

2. Create a new “General Project” (Strg+N) with the same name as your project that you just moved into your workspace (everyproject is a folder so same name as the foldername)

eclipse import project


eclipse import project2

3. DADA 🙂
