I reinstalled my system and started a new project and ran into some troubles with deployment.
I have a shared project that contains two different (local) web root folders:
both folders are mapped to different local folders in the deployment settings:
/project/htdocs/ -> /var/www/vhosts/www.[hostname]/htdocs
/project/htdocs_api/ -> /var/www/vhosts/api.[hostname]/htdocs
First problem: When I select "Deployment" the menu lacks the option to compare server side and local files.
Second problem: When I want to upload a file I have to select "Deployment", then "Upload", then select the single option that pops up. PHPStorm know there's just one option, but it doesn't use that information. Before the new setup I was able to upload the file right away without selecting the server.
What is causing these problems? Testing the SFTP account settings had positive results, I can login and upload files with PHPStorm, it's just really uncomfortable and missing the compare functionality.
