Use this dialog box to create a configuration to be used for running unit tests on PHP applications.

- The PEAR folder should be added to the list of include paths or project content roots.
The dialog box consists of the following areas:
Click here for the description of the options that are common for all run/debug configurations.
In this area, specify the location of tests or the configuration file where they are listed.
In this text box, specify the XML file with additional test runner configuration options and possibly definitions of tests to execute.
When such file is specified, its configuration options override the default test runner configuration settings. If you have selected the Defined in the configuration file option in the Test scope area, the tests to execute are also taken from this file.
Type the path manually or click the Browse button and appoint the desired file in the Choose Test File dialog box, that opens.

Type the path manually or click the Browse button and select the desired folder in the dialog that opens.
This settings does not block the test execution because the location of tests is always specified through a full path to the corresponding files and/or directories.
In this text box, specify the environment variables to run the PHP interpreter with, if applicable.
Click the Browse button to the right of the field and configure a list of variables
in the Environment Variables dialog box, that opens:

Select this check box to make the run/debug configuration available to other team members.
If the directory-based project format is used, the settings for a run/debug configuration are stored in a separate xml file in the .idea\runConfigurations folder if the run/debug configuration is shared and in the .idea\workspace.xml file otherwise.
If the file-based format is used, the settings are stored in the .ipr file for shared configurations or in the .iws file for the ones that are not shared.
This check box is not available when editing the run/debug configuration defaults.
|Before launch||Specify which tasks should be carried out before starting the run/debug configuration.
The specified tasks are performed in the order that they appear in the list.
