PhpStorm 2022.3 Help


PhpStorm supports integration with the Phing build framework. Phing is mainly intended for building PHP projects, but it can also be used as a build tool in a number of areas. Phing functionality in PhpStorm is provided through a dedicated Phing Build tool window.

Before you start

Install Phing

  • Make sure Phing is installed on your computer. If you are using an AMP, the package may already contain Phing.

Enable the Phing plugin

This functionality relies on the Phing plugin, which is bundled and enabled in PhpStorm by default. If the relevant features are not available, make sure that you did not disable the plugin.

  1. Press Ctrl+Alt+S to open the IDE settings and select Plugins.

  2. Open the Installed tab, find the Phing plugin, and select the checkbox next to the plugin name.

Accessing Phing Build tool window

  1. Open a Phing build file in the editor or select it in the Project tool window, and then choose Add as Phing build file from the context menu of the selection.

  2. Choose View | Tool Windows | Phing Build from the main menu. The tool window can be accessed after you have opened it through the context menu of a Phing build file in the editor or in the Project tool window.
