PhpStorm 2016.3 Help

New Project: PHP Empty Project

File | New Project

Welcome Screen | Create New Project

The right-hand pane of the Create New Project dialog looks as follows when you choose PHP Empty Project from the list in the left-hand pane.

ItemDescription
PHP Language Level In this drop-down list, specify the PHP functionality scope to get coding assistance for. Each functionality scope is associated with PHP version that supports this functionality. Currently PHP 5.3, PHP 5.4, PHP 5.5, PHP 5.6, PHP 7, and PHP 7.1 levels are supported.

No correlation between the PHP version used in the project and the language level is enforced. Although the language version of each interpreter is detected automatically, you can still tell PhpStorm to provide you with coding assistance that corresponds to another language level. However, if you attempt to use a code construct that is not supported by the specified language level, PhpStorm suggests a Switch to PHP <version> quick-fix.

Interpreter From this drop-down list, choose the PHP interpreter to use in the current project. The list contains all the currently configured local and remote PHP interpreters. See Configuring Local PHP Interpreters and Configuring Remote PHP Interpreters for details.
Include path This area shows a list of paths to PHP-related items below the PHP home directory. The specified include paths will be used:
  • By the require(), include(), fopen(), file(), readfile(), and file_get_contents() functions when looking for files to use.
  • By PhpStorm when resolving references to included files.

Use the Add new.png  and Remove  delete.png buttons to manage the contents of the list. Use the Up /help/img/idea/2016.3/arrowUp.png  and Down  /help/img/idea/2016.3/arrowDown.png  buttons to change the order of items in the list.
