PhpStorm 2017.3 Help

Creating and Saving Temporary Run/Debug Configurations

Introduction

Sometimes you might need to run or debug a certain class or file without creating a dedicated run configuration. In this case, you can use the temporary run configuration provided by PhpStorm.

Temporary run/debug configuration is added to the list of available configurations and works same way as the permanent run/debug configuration. You can change its settings using the Run/Debug Configuration dialog box and optionally save it as permanent.

Creating a temporary run/debug configuration

  1. Select the desired PHP class or file in the Project tool window or open it in the editor.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • On the context menu, choose Run <name> or Debug <name>.
    • Press Ctrl+Shift+F10.
  3. On the submenu, choose the temporary run/debug configuration you would like to create:
    • Click ps js debug icon to create the JavaScript Debug configuration, which is used for debugging JavaScript in applications running on the built-in or on an external web server and for debugging Dart web applications.
    • Click ps php cli debug conf icon to create the PHP Script configuration, which is used for running and debugging of single PHP files locally using a PHP console.

    PhpStorm creates a temporary configuration, which appears in the Run/Debug Configuration selector when the run or debug session is over.

Saving a temporary run/debug configuration

  • In the Run/Debug Configuration selector, choose Save <configuration name>.
  • In the Run/Debug Configuration dialog box, click io.
  • On the context menu of the editor or Project view, choose Save <configuration name>.
