PHP file type disappeared


I just experienced a machine crash in OSX and after rebooting PhpStorm doesn't open PHP files anymore.

At first I got an error about some corrupted class and the program unable to open zip files, or something like that, unfortunately I don't have a screenshot.
PhpStorm complained it couldn't start and that I had to restart, so I did.

After restarting PhpStorm if I click on a PHP file PhpStorm asks for the file type, and PHP is not on the list.

I tried reinstalling the program but it didn't solve the issue.

I have recreated the file type under Preferences->File types, but it doesn't work very well, now I can open PHP files but the code is not highlighted and the IDE doesn't recognise any keyword.

Is there some file to delete so that I can do a clean installation ? Any file I can restore or something I can do ?

Thank you

Try delete (make backup before) whole .WebIde10 directory in your user directory and reinstall PhpStorm after that.

I couldn't find that folder however I found one similar under "Library/Application Support"

I deleted it but didn't solve the issue yet.

I'm trying to guess where PhpStorm stores its status, since it remembers the current project after restarting it.

for the record I'm using PhpStorm-EAP-98.240 installed via PhpStorm-EAP-98.240.dmg
