Do not completion base php functions


Hi there.

I've reinstalled my macOS and the latest PHPStorm version(2017.2.3), and of course, I did export and import PhpStorm's setting from my previous version. But, I have problem, the new 2017.2.3 do not completion php base functions like var_dump, json_encode...., although, after write fully function name I still go to declaration.

With the same setting, I use on my Mac air with version 2017.1.4 still working well.

Please take a look and show me how to fix this issue.

Thank you.

P.s: if you want to me upload my setting.jar, please let I know.


Hi there,

Please try "File | Invalidate Caches..." and restart IDE -- may help.

It may also depend on actual file content (just a thought though) and even 3rd party plugins.

I suggest:

  • create brand new empty project and try creating some simple code there.
  • try with 3rd party plugins disabled


Great. Invalidate cache and restart.

Thank you very much, Andriy Bazanov.
