I am trying to setup a remote PHP project from existing files with IntelliJ 2016.1. All information I can find refers to PhpStorm, even the topics found under IntelliJ's "Support Home". But apparently there are differences between INtelliJ and PhpStorm in this respect. When I try to create a "New - Project from Existing Sources", I can only select a local folder and not the remote server I configured.
I use IntelliJ mostly for PHP and related web development work. I chose for IntelliJ and not PhpStorm, because I want to have access to other language features as well, for educational purposes. I was assured by JetBrains personnel that anything that can be done with PhpStorm, can also be achieved with IntelliJ. So either I am missing something completely, or I got the wrong advice and am stuck now :(
A quick solution is appreciated, since I am stuck now and under time pressure.
