NetBeans Generate Documentation

I recently took over a large confusing PHP / MySQL system. I am trying to do some documentation so I may understand it better.

I see NetBeans has a Generate Documentation option. I tried to set up APIGen and Documentator but I can’t seem to get either working. Does anyone use either of the two options? Do you have step-by-step instructions?

So far, I have APIGen installed. When I put in C:\Program Files (x86)\PHP\apigen.bat in the ApiGen Script of Tools --> Options --> PHP --> ApiGen. I don’t get any documentation. I get

C:\Program Files (x86)\PHP\apigen.bat --source C:\inetpub\wwwroot\hello-world --destination C:\inetpub\wwwroot\hello-world\api --title Hello --charset UTF-8 --access-levels public,protected --internal no --php yes --tree yes --deprecated no --todo no --download no --source-code yes --colors yes --progressbar no --update-check yes

Any thoughts?

I never used APIGen, but I did notice a really good video on how to get it working here…

You should watch it.

I saw that video as well.

Do you use another documenting tool? I also saw phpDocumentor.

I’m really bad with documentation…

I just do inline and that’s it…
