WebStorm 2018.2 Help

Renaming Projects

  1. Right-click the root folder of your project and select Refactor | Rename from the context menu.

  2. In the dialog that opens, select the rename strategy.
    • If the project name is the same as the name of its root folder, select Rename directory.

    • Select Rename project if the project name is different from the name of its root folder. Also select this option if your application is deployed to a remote server and the project root folder is mapped to the server root.

    Of course, you can rename the root folder and update the mapping in the server configuration accordingly, see Configuring Synchronization with a Web Server for details.
