PHP Web Page
Use this dialog to configure running and debugging of PHP applications on a remote server. According to the settings of this configuration, PhpStorm fully controls the debugging process: it launches the application, opens the browser, and activates the debugging engine. A PHP Web Page debug configuration tells PhpStorm the URL address to access the starting page of the application, the browser to open the starting page in, and the debug server configuration to use. For details, see Debug with a PHP web page debug configuration.
Use this list to specify the Web server configuration to use. The list shows all the configurations that are currently available in PhpStorm.
Click this button to open the Servers page and view the details of the selected configuration there.
In this area, compose the URL address to access the application through. In the Start URL field, specify the local file that implements the starting page of the application. Type the path to the desired file relative to the folder that is mapped to the root folder of the target host. PhpStorm concatenates the host root URL with the specified relative path and shows the URL address of the application starting page in the read-only field below.
From this list, select the Web browser to open the application in.
When you edit a run configuration (but not a run configuration template), you can specify the following options:
Specify a name for the run configuration to quickly identify it among others when editing or running.
Allow multiple instances
Allow running multiple instances of this run configuration in parallel.
By default, it is disabled, and when you start this configuration while another instance is still running, PhpStorm suggests stopping the running instance and starting another one. This is helpful when a run configuration consumes a lot of resources and there is no good reason to run multiple instances.
Store as project file
Save the file with the run configuration settings to share it with other team members. The default location is .idea/runConfigurations. However, if you do not want to share the .idea directory, you can save the configuration to any other directory within the project.
By default, it is disabled, and PhpStorm stores run configuration settings in .idea/workspace.xml.
The tree view of run/debug configurations has a toolbar that helps you manage configurations available in your project as well as adjust default configurations templates.
Create a run/debug configuration.
Delete the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you cannot delete default configurations.
Create a copy of the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you create copies of default configurations.
The button is displayed only when you select a temporary configuration. Click this button to save a temporary configuration as permanent.
Move into new folder / Create new folder. You can group run/debug configurations by placing them into folders.
To create a folder, select the configurations within a category, click , and specify the folder name. If only a category is in focus, an empty folder is created.
Then, to move a configuration into a folder, between the folders or out of a folder, use drag or and buttons.
To remove grouping, select a folder and click .
Click this button to sort configurations in the alphabetical order.
