It would seem there is a fair deal of call for an updated version of my PhpED dark theme from colleagues as well as random folks on the internet who’ve seen screenshots of my PhpED installation. I previously had my Dark Theme for 5 linked on my Review of PhpED, but I figured I could have a page dedicated to it.
After you have downloaded the file you will need to replace your hl.cfg.
In Windows 7 or Vista this should be located in or around:
C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\AppData\[Roaming / Local]\NuSphere\PhpED\config
C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR_USER_NAME\Application Data\NuSphere\PhpED\config
The final step is to simply change your background color to a dark color. The background color is oddly saved in a different configuration file than the highlighting. This can be found in Tools ⇒ Settings ⇒ Editor ⇒ Appearance
While you're in there you may want to tweak the settings some to your taste, but that is all there is to it.
