Instructions on how to complete a procedure

To upload a project to an CVS repository:

  1. In PHP Explorer View, right-click your project and select Team | Share Project.
    The "Share Project" dialog appears.

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

  1. Select 'Use existing repository location', and select your repository from the list.
    If you have not yet configured a CVS repository, enter the information required to connect to your CVS Repository. See Configuring a CVS Connection for more information.

  2. Click Finish.

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

  4. Enter a comment if required and click OK.

Your project will be uploaded to the CVS repository.

Your project will now have a repository icon next to it in PHP Explorer View, indicating that it is linked to a CVS repository.

Once the project has been committed other team members will be able to access and edit it.
