The page is available only when the PHP plugin is enabled. The plugin is bundled with PhpStorm and activated by default. If the plugin is not activated, enable it on the Plugins page of the Settings / Preferences Dialog as described in Enabling and Disabling Plugins.
Use this page to configure the behaviour of the Xdebug and Zend Debugger debugging tools.
|Values tooltip delay||In this tet box, specify the time period to pass between you hover the mouse pointer over a variable or another code element and a tooltip with the value of this element appears.

In this area, customize local debugging, when the processed files are on your machine.
In this area, specify how you want PhpStorm to treat connections received from hosts and through ports that are not registered as server configurations.
Use the controls in this area to configure debugging using the Xdebug tool.
|Zend Debugger||Use the controls in this area to configure debugging using the Zend Debugger tool.
|Use debugger bookmarklets to initiate debugger from your favorite browser||Follow this link to open the Zend Debugger & Xdebug bookmarklets page where you can generate bookmarklets through which you will start/stop a debugging session by controlling the debugger cookie.|
Notify if debug session was finished without being stopped - select this check box to have PhpStorm display a notification
when no breakpoints are hit during Zero-Configuration debugging.
This may happen
if the path mappings are not configured or configured erroneously, or if you have not set any breakpoints.
In the latter case, enabling the option on the main menu may also help.
If the check box is cleared, no debugging sessions is established and the PHP script is just executed without being suspended.
