I'm a programming PHP newbie, who is currently doing a course on PHP. I've decided to give PHPStorm a try with a view to buying it if it works out. At the moment I have to say I'm impressed with the program, but there is something that has me stumped. Currently I have my folder structure step up so that all the web projects I'm working on is stored in the Documents folder. I have PHP installed via WAMP, and I've been doing my work in the Documents\WebProjects\<folder name>\ folder, then copying that folder across to the webserver and running the files via the web server directory.
So basically I have two sets of identical folders/files, one temporally stored on my development web server, and one set perminantly stored under my Documents folder. The problem I'm having is I can't seem to configure PHPStorm so that it will allow me to create and save the files in the Documents folder, and then deploy them to the local webserver where they can be run. I've gone over and over the steps in the help system, and I've realised that I'm missing something somewhere. Any help would be warmly appreciated.
