Setting up environment for web development

I just downloaded PHPstorm IDE and I want to start developing.

I am using a Mac. I have successfully installed and ran MAMP.
Here are the steps taken to have my PHP interpreter configured. I have taken screenshots to better illustrate my situation. Please help. I want to start developing. What am I doing wrong>?

Hi there,

What am I doing wrong>?

You have NOT configured your PHP interpreter -- your 2nd screenshot clearly shows: <no interpreter>. You should clocl on "..." boutton, provide your path to PHP interpreter and select it in that drop down box.

PHP Interpreter is only required for local development when you plan to execute php scripts in CLI mode (be it script itself .. or other local tools, like PHPUnit or similar)

Have a look at this thread -- it should have all the answers:
