Add FTP support to a project

I am sure this is a basic thing that I just couldn't find in searching the documents, but I am brand new to PHPStorm (2.1.5 on Win7x64) and I have created a project, which I have open in the IDE, but I can't figure out how to set the remote host for it. I have the remote host settings entered. Any tip or suggestion would be greatly appreciated, or even a point to the right docs for it. Thanks.

Hi William,

Default workflow is to start your project from files on remote host: check out 'Create project from existing files' action in Main menu -> File or Welcome screen. For details please watch this screencast (a little bit outated, but sitll valid).

If you have already created the project, please open File -> Settings -> Deployment page, there set up your server and deployment mappings (see Mappings tab). With mappings you specify which local folders should be deployed and where. Once finished, use Deployment -> Upload / Download actions accessible in Project view, Editor and Remote Host view (via context menu or hotkeys if specified).

Please get back here if you have any other questions.

Cheers,
Kirill

Thanks for the information. I skimmed over the settings and missed the deployment section. I get that this isn't necessarily the default workflow, but from time to time I'll start working on a project, getting resources and maybe some initial code together while I'm waiting on the hosting to be set up, and wanted to be sure I could modify the hosting settings after the fact.
