Set web root directory?

I have my directory structure like this

Project -

The problem is, in my template file I am including main.css and main.js, (<script src="js/main.js"></script>) but phpstorm says that can't resolve directory

How Can I tell phpstorm that "web" is my base directory
I tried adding it as content root, but won't let me add it.
I also tried it is an include path, but won't add it as that either.

Hi there,

"Settings | Directories" (or via context menu on that folder in Project View) and mark it as Resource Root

Also ... you may consider writing URLs/links to resources relative to the website root (<script src="/js/main.js"> -- notice the leading slash) and not to the current page (<script src="js/main.js">). Of course -- it is not a solution for 100% of situations -- there always can be situations where you would like to do opposite to my suggestion.

ok thank you.
I can't do website root because I develop on my local box and have many different projects on the web root. So all the projects are in subfolders., where as on the production server it is not.

You can setup individual sites on your local development server -- domain names can easily be faken via hosts file .. the rest is just your web server (Apache etc) server configuration (Virtual host).

If you have time and desire -- investigate and do it -- you will have environment 1 more step close to the production one.
