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

Use this dialog box to configure PHP development and unit testing support in the project level by choosing one of the PHP installations configured at the IntelliJ IDEA level.

Item Tooltip and
PHP language level In this drop-down list, specify the PHP functionality scope you are going to use. Each functionality scope is associated with PHP version that supports this functionality. Depending on this choice, IntelliJ IDEA will provide your with the relevant coding assistance.

No correlation between the PHP version used in the project and the language level is enforced. Although the language version of each interpreter is detected automatically, you can still tell IntelliJ IDEA to provide you with coding assistance that corresponds to another language level. However, if you attempt to use a code construct that is not supported by the specified language level, IntelliJ IDEA suggests a Switch to PHP <version> quick-fix.

Interpreter From this drop-down list, choose the installation to use in the current project. The list contains all the PHP installations configured at the IntelliJ IDEA level.

browseButton Click this button next to the Interpreter drop-down list to create a new IntelliJ IDEA-wide PHP installation configuration in the Interpreters dialog box, that opens.
Include path This area shows a list of paths to PHP-related items below the PHP home directory. The specified include paths will be used:
  • By the require(), include(), fopen(), file(), readfile(), and file_get_contents() functions when looking for files to use.
  • By IntelliJ IDEA when resolving references to included files.

Use the Add new.png  and Remove  delete.png buttons to manage the contents of the list. Use the Up arrowUp  and Down  arrowDown  buttons to change the order of items in the list.
