Accessing an Existing CVS Checkout

This procedure shows you how to access projects in Zend Studio that you have previously checked out from CVS. This means you do not have to check out resources again to a new location in order to have access to Zend Studio's functionality.



Instructions on how to complete a procedure

To access previously checked out projects:

  1. Go to File | New | PHP Project from Existing Directory.
    In the PHP Explorer View, right-click and select New | PHP Project from Existing Directory.
    The New PHP Project Settings dialog is displayed.

  1. Enter the following information:

  • Project Name: Enter the name of your project.

  • Location: Enter the location folder for your project.

  1. Click Finish.
    A new PHP Project will be created with the contents of the project you had checked out.

  2. In PHP Explorer View, right-click your project and select Team | Share Project.
    A Share Project dialog will open.

  3. From the repository list, select CVS and click Next.

  4. If you have not yet configured an CVS repository, you will need to enter your CVS repository details. See Configuring an CVS Connection for more information.
    If you have already configured an CVS connection, mark the 'Use existing repository location' option and select your repository from the list.

  5. Click Finish.

  6. Depending on your authentication settings, a dialog might appear asking you to provide authentication information.
    Enter your password and click Next. (Mark the Save Password checkbox to ensure that this screen does not reappear.)
    A Commit dialog will open.

  7. Enter a comment if required and click OK.

Your project will be uploaded to the CVS repository.

Your project will have a repository icon next to it in PHP Explorer view, indicating that it is linked to an CVS repository.
Your can now perform all CVS functions (commit, update etc.) on this project.
