How clear /home/serge/.WebIde80 directory?

Hello,

I found that my directory /home/serge/.WebIde80 is more 3 Gib in size.

If I want to clear, can I just remove this directory or there is better way to deal with it?

Hi there,

This is your settings for PhpStorm (or WebStorm) v8.

If you are no longer using it (e.g. using latest version of the IDE instead) then you can safely delete whole folder.

If you still use v8:

  • keep "config" folder -- that's where your IDE-wide settings & plugins are stored
  • delete any other folders (e.g. "system") -- that's your indexes/caches and alike (which will be rebuilt next launch as needed).

Obviously, all these operations should be done when IDE is closed.
