IntelliJ IDEA 12.1.0 Web Help

Some features described here are available in Ultimate edition only.

A server configuration defines:

  1. The host to be used for uploading or downloading.
  2. The server configuration root: the highest folder in the destination host hierarchy that can be accessed through the server configuration.
  3. The URL address to access the server configuration root.
  4. The protocol to transfer the data.
  5. Correspondence between local folders, destination folders on the host, and URL addresses to access uploaded folders.

You can define as many configurations as necessary, thus enabling flexible switching between deployment setups.

To create a server configuration
  1. Open the Deployment dialog box. Do one of the following:
  2. On the Deployment page, click the Add toolbar button add.png. In the Add Server dialog box that opens, specify the configuration name and the way to access the destination.
    • To bind your sources with the upload destination via an association between a volume and a directory on another volume, choose Mounted Folder.
    • To copy the sources to the destination via the File Transfer Protocol, the File Transfer Protocol over SSL, or the Safe File Transfer Protocol, choose FTP or SFTP respectively.
  3. Click OK to return to the Connection tab of the Deployment page, where the name of the created configuration and the selected access type are displayed in the corresponding fields. Change the settings, if necessary.


    Click the Use as Default toolbar button icon_use_web_server_configuration_as_default.png to have IntelliJ IDEA silently apply the current configuration in the following cases:

  4. Specify the connection settings depending on the chosen configuration type.
  5. Specify the server configuration root, which is the highest folder accessible through the server configuration.
    • For FTP, FTPS, or SFTP configurations, specify the path to the root folder relative to the host in the Root Path text box.
    • For Mounted Folder configurations, specify the full path to the destination on the mounted folder.
  6. In the Web server root URL text box, type the URL address to access the server configuration root. Click the Open button to make sure that the specified URL address is accessible and points at the correct Web page.
  7. Specify bilateral or trilateral mappings, depending on the chosen configuration type.
