Go to Tools->Plugins

On the Installed tab check PHP and click on Activate. Restart NetBeans.

Note: I assume you have downloaded the appropriate package containing PHP tools.

On 7.0.1 go to Tools->Plugins

click the Settings tab and Activate the Update Centers.

Now click the Available Plugins tab and you should see PHP

Install and Reboot Netbeans.
