Run/Debug Configuration: PHP Script
Use this dialog box to configure running and debugging of single PHP files locally using a PHP console.
Click here for the description of the options that are common for all run/debug configurations.
The dialog box consists of the following areas:
In this area, specify the script to run or debug and the parameters to process it with, if applicable.
In this area, customize the behavior of the current PHP interpreter by specifying the options and arguments to be passed to the PHP executable file.
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.
|Custom working directory||
In this text box, specify the location of the files that are outside the folder with the script and are referenced in your script through relative paths.
Type the path manually or click the Browse button and select the desired folder in the dialog that opens.
This setting does not block the script execution because the script location is always specified through a full path.
|Environment variables||In this field, specify the environment variables be passed to the built-in server. See Environment Variables in Apache for details.|
Use the controls in this area to configure behaviour of the debugging tool.
|Break at the first line||Select this check box to have the debugging tool stop at the first line of the source code.|
|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.|
|Temporary configurations limit||Specify here the maximum number of temporary configurations to be stored and shown in the Select Run/Debug Configuration drop-down list.|
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.
