Live Editing Without Built In Web Server

Hi,

I don't use the built in web server that comes with PHPStorm, instead I use and apache install I setup on my local machine. The problem is that I want to set up Live Editing, but this seems to require a javascript debugger that relies on the PHPStorm web server.

My question is: Has anyone found a configuration for Live Editing that can be done using an apache install and not the PHPStorm web server.

Thanks!

Hi there,

but this seems to require a javascript debugger that relies on the PHPStorm web server.

That is not true -- Live Edit will work with ANY web server software.

You must be confused by the fact that Chrome's JB extension as well as Live Edit & built-in web server communicate via the same port.

Built-in web server URLs are used when opening scripts/pages from within IDE when no Deployment is configured. Once deployment entry is configures and marked as Default for this project, URLs defined there will be used instead.

Hi Andriy,

Thanks for checking this out. So you are saying that if I configure my projects for apache integration like this:

Then I should be able to set up Live Editor correctly?
