PHP interpreter setting error: "PHP version: Not installed"

I am trying to setup debugging between PhpStorm and my Ubuntu VM in VirtualBox. Here are my interpreter settings:
If I click on the "...", I see this:

So the connection to the server works fine.

However, in the first image, you can see there's an error: "PHP version: Not installed"

Also, when I click the refresh icon, I see this:

I am unable to debug, and I'm assuming this is the problem.

What's the issue here and how do I fix it?

Just noticed the error has "vagrant" in the path mentioned, but I'm not using vagrant.

Hi there,

Rather random thought:

  1. Create deployment configuration of SFTP type and configure it (in case if you have not got for this host already) and mark it as Default for this project.
  2. Create your remote PHP interpreter using that deployment configuration

Any better?

I submitted a ticket ealier today about this, and actually just updated it, saying:

since the error message referenced a /home/vagrant/.phpstorm_helpers directory, I tried creating it with these commands:

mkdir -p /home/vagrant/.phpstorm_helpers
chmod -R 777 /home/vagrant/.phpstorm_helpers

Now the error in the IDE went away.

I think this is a bug? I shouldn't have to manually create the folder like this?
