PhpStorm 8.0.2 Help

Using CVS Integration

With the CVS integration enabled, you can perform basic CVS operations from inside PhpStorm.

In this section:


  • PhpStorm comes bundled with CVS plugin. This plugin is turned on by default. If it is not, make sure that the plugin is enabled.
  • PhpStorm's CVS integration does not require a standalone CVS client. All you need is an account in your CVS repository.
  • CVS integration is enabled for the current project root or directory.

CVS support

  • When the CVS integration with PhpStorm is enabled, the CVS item appears on the VCS menu, and on the context menus of the Editor and Project views.
  • The files in the folders under the CVS control are highlighted according to their status. See File Status Highlights for file status highlighting conventions.
  • Results of modifications show in the Changes tool window.
  • When using the CVS integration, it is helpful to open the Version Control tool window. Its Console tab displays the following data:
    • All the commands generated based on the settings you specify through the PhpStorm user interface.
    • Information messages concerning the results of executing generated CVS commands.
    • Error messages.
