The page and all the pages under this node are available only when the PHP plugin is enabled.

The plugin is not bundled with IntelliJ IDEA, but it is available from the JetBrains plugin repository. Once enabled, the plugin is available at the IDE level, that is, you can use it in all your IntelliJ IDEA projects. See Installing, Updating and Uninstalling Repository Plugins and Enabling and Disabling Plugins for details.

Use this page to configure PHP development and unit testing support in the project by choosing one of the available PHP interpreters, see Configuring Local PHP Interpreters and Configuring Remote PHP Interpreters.
