Hi all, new to Phpstorm here, testing it out on trial version and very interested in buying the full pro version. It's been lots of fun configuring it for CI and theming it, all in all I'm blown away I haven't been using Phpstorm earlier.
However, there is one huge problem I have and I'm either blind or somehow this functionality just isn't there.
We have a server with over 30 sites on, totaling well over 100,000 files all in all. Now, whenever I try to create a remote project it starts to download all the files locally without me asking of it, I just want to be able to edit the files directly on the server, like in Aptana and Phpdesinger, which I've been using for a long time but the development of those IDE's just isn't going anywhere and they just don't come close to PHPstorm, Phpstorm blows them both out of the water except for this one thing.
My question is, how do you turn this off? It is , for a lack of a better word, mental, to dl 100,000 files on 6 different machines. I don't see why this functionality is forced on the user when seemingly such a core and simple feature is disabled.
To paint a picture: Imagine the project tree on the left = ftp dir, you open files directly from the remote server and when you save it's automatically uploaded.
The way I'm doing it now is I got filezilla running and phpstorm set to default prog to open with, when I close the file in phpstorm, filezilla detects it and uploads the file. This is painful to do though :/
Sorry for my bad english, it's my fourth language, I hope I provided enough information.
