I'm running PhpStorm 2.1.12 on OS 10.6.8. I am running the built-in Apache server, have enabled PHP and MySQL and set up my development folder to match my remote server's directory structure.
When I create a new project from existing files, the files are successfully copied from the server to the local environment. But when I open a local HTM file for changes and then choose "Web preview" it loads and shows the unchanged remote file instead.
I thought that PhpStorm will load the recently modified local file into Safari/Firefox and allow me to see the changes before deploying it to the remote server. It's possible to navigate to the directory where the files exist and double-click on it to launch another Safari/Firefox window, but shouldn't PhpStorm launch the local version?
Example: The local file is at "Volumes/Data-X/Users/mdavis/Sites/wsdb/public_html/index.htm" and yet when I click "Web preview" the browser launches and shows "http://wsdb.com/index.htm" which is the live site. (Note: I changed the site name to protect my client as the site is very ugly. :) )
Is there a preference or configuration option to allow PhpStorm to load and view the local file in a browser?
