Setting up local website environment
First you need to install apache2 and php on your local machine. Second step is to checkout phoenix, the website environment eclipse is using. You need the org.eclipse.phoenix project from here:
Move the content of org.eclipse.phoenix to your document root directory (for example: /var/www/). Next check out another required directory and the recommenders site from this repository:
:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/org.eclipse #Read only :extssh:yourEclipseAccount@dev.eclipse.org:/cvsroot/org.eclipse #Write access for committers
You need home and recommenders of folder www in the repository. Place them in the document root, too. Note that org.eclipse.phoenix did contain a home directory already: Just merge them together.
