Run/Debug Configuration: App Engine for PHP
The dialog box is available only if the Google App Engine Support for PHP plugin is installed and enabled. The plugin is bundled with PhpStorm and activated by default. If the plugin is not activated, enable it on the Plugins page of the Settings / Preferences Dialog as described in Enabling and Disabling Plugins.
App Engine for PHP Specific Configuration Settings
In this area, specify the settings for running and debugging your application on the PHP development server in the command-line mode .
In this text box, specify the options to be passed to the PHP executable file.
They override the default behavior of the PHP interpreter and/or ensure that additional activities are performed.
If necessary, click and type the desired options in the Command Line Options dialog box. Type each option on a new line. When you close the dialog box, they are all displayed in the Command line options text box with spaces as separators.
|Interpreter options||In this field, specify the options to be passed to the PHP executable file of the built-in PHP interpreter, see Command-Line Arguments for details.|
|Custom working directory||In this text box, specify the location of the files that are outside the folder with your sources and are referenced through relative paths. Type the path manually or click the Browse button and select the desired folder in the dialog that opens.|
|Environment variables||In this field, specify the environment variables be passed to the built-in server. See Environment Variables in Apache for details.|
|Name||In this text box, specify the name of the current run/debug configuration. This field does not appear for the default run/debug configurations.|
|Defaults||This node in the left-hand pane of the dialog box contains the default run/debug configuration settings. Select the desired configuration to change its default settings in the right-hand pane. The defaults are applied to all newly created run/debug configurations.|
Select this check box to make the run/debug configuration available to other team members.
The shared run/debug configurations are kept in separate xml files under
This check box is not available when editing the run/debug configuration defaults.
|Single instance only||If this check box is selected, this run/debug configuration cannot be launched more than once.
Every time a new run/debug configuration is launched, PhpStorm checks the presence of the other instances of the same run/debug configuration, and displays a confirmation dialog box. If you click OK in the confirmation dialog box, the first instance of the runner will be stopped, and the next one will take its place.
This makes sense when the usage of certain resources can cause conflicts, or when launching two run/debug configurations of the same type consumes too much of the CPU and memory resources.
If this check box is not selected, it is possible to launch as many instances of the runner as required. So doing, each runner will start in its own tab of the Run tool window.
|Before launch||Specify which tasks must be performed before applying the run/debug configuration.
The specified tasks are performed in the order they appear in the list.
