up until about 15 minutes ago, I would refresh the page in the browser on my local server and if the green telephone was on these things would happen:
#1) a popup would ask me to ACCEPT or IGNORE the incoming connection
#2) clicking ACCEPT would open the 'debug' tool window
#3) a blue line would appear in the editor at the first breakpoint.
#4) hitting F8 would walk me through the code until i hit F9 to let it play out.
Now what is happening:
#1 if the green telephone icon is on the browser does not progress.
#2 no popup appears
#3 no 'debug' tool window opens.
#4 F8 and F9 do nothing.
#4 it will stay like this until i uncheck the green telephone icon, then it will play out.
I've tried restarting PhpStorm, tried removing the default settings by removing any settings in "Run/Debug Configurations".
Im in the middle of debugging stuff so not being able to debug is annoying.
Any ideas what setting i need to change to get it working again?
--- edit ---
as soon as you ask, you find it.
The settings that needed to be removed were these:
TOOLS -> EDIT CONFIGURATIONS -> PHP HTTP REQUESTS -> on the right hand side, there is "Server: [dropdown box] [...]" click on the [...] to bring up the Servers list. Then delete all the servers. The popup box will appear again.
