Newbie Question

Hello all. I have been using WebStorm for development of a couple of web sites and have found that it's fairly easy to use. I am going to be getting into PHP development for MySQL and have a question regarding PhpStorm vs WebStorm. Can WebStorm be used for developing PHP or should I get PhpStorm for developing PHP and use WebStorm for other forms of files (e.g. asp, html, etc.)?What are are the advantage of using WebStorm vs PhpStorm?Regards,Rich

Hi there,

PhpStorm = WebStorm + PHP + Database support

Some plugins are bundled with WebStorm by default but missing from PhpStorm distribution (like, nodejs, for example). But they can easily be installed later for no additional cost.
