I extracted the plugins directory from phpeclipse.zip into the eclpise plugins directory, was this the correct way to set it up for php development?

It depends on the zip format - some plugins are packaged in different ways.

What you WANT is for the directory ECLIPSE/plugins to contain net.sourceforge.phpeclipse subdirectories. If you find them inside an ECLIPSE/plugins/plugins directory, pull them up a level.

"ECLIPSE" is your Eclipse base directory, BTW.
