PHPStorm 6, Live Edit and remote server

I have looked through numerous articles and forum posts regarding this, but cannot find an answer.

Does Live Edit work with a remote server?

I am using Version 0.5.7 of the Chrome plugin in and build PS-127.100 of PHPStorm.

The "JB" icon in Chrome is not grey out and the tooltip says "connected to PS-127.100".

If I manually select "Reload in Browser", the page does refresh.

The Chrome log says this:

Ready to load system latest for PS-127.100 (217.37.195.117:63342) browser-ext-platform.js:695
System latest loaded for PS-127.100 (217.37.195.117:63342) browser-ext-platform.js:695
System latest connected to PS-127.100 (217.37.195.117:63342) browser-ext-platform.js:695

IN [1,[[1]]] browser-ext-platform.js:708
IN ["Dom","reloadPages"] browser-ext-platform.js:708
IN [2,[[1]]] browser-ext-platform.js:708



But still Live Edit does not work.

Any help would be much appreciated

I'm also interested in this.
Phpstorm is installed on my main machine and the web server is on another.
I'd like to use Live edit.
Also, how to get files created by a Sass compiler to be automatically uploaded to the remote server?
I have to manually select "upload to sandbox.dev" every time I modify the Sass and want to see the changes

Please ensure that View -> LiveEdit is checked. What file do you try to edit?

"how to get files created by a Sass compiler" You can use "Remote Hosts Plugin", please see http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/webhelp/remote-hosts.html

I explained how I got this to work in a blog post

Unfortunately, I couldn't get the builtin tools to work for me

Hi Kirill,

One of obversations is that the Chrome opens up the following url, when webstorm is closed. I tried the trial of WebStorm EAP also.. but same problem exists.

I'm running into the exact same thing using webstorm 7. Does live edit work with a remove server?

It's been long but I'm facing the same issue. I've just arrived to PHPstorm and I cannot get it running with live edits and remote servers. Can somebody gives some directions?
