These tools cannot be used simultaneously because they block each other. To avoid this problem, you need to update the corresponding sections in the php.ini file. To open the active php.ini file in the editor:

  1. Open the Settings / Preferences Dialog by pressing Ctrl+Alt+S or by choosing File | Settings for Windows and Linux or IntelliJ IDEA | Preferences for macOS, and click PHP under Languages & Frameworks.
  2. On the PHP page that opens, click browseButton.png next to the CLI Interpreter field.
