File | Settings | PHP | Servers - Validate remote environment
Use this dialog box to initiate validation of the debugger setup in a remote environment. In the context of IntelliJ IDEA, the term remote denotes any environment outside the project root. This can be a server on physically remote host, or a Vagrant box, or a server on the same machine but in a folder outside your project root. For details, see Working with Web Servers: Copying Files.
In this field, specify the server access configuration of the type Local Server
or Remote Server to access the target environment.
For details see Configuring Synchronization with a Web Server.
Choose a configuration from the drop-down list or click the Browse button in the Deployment dialog.
|Local path to create validation script||In this field, specify the local folder where the validation script will be created. The folder must be mapped to a remote folder to which http access is permitted. If the project root is mapped to a folder accessible through http, you can specify the project root or any other folder under it.|
