Local web server config

When developing PHP for the web, I typically use a svn checkout as my project folder that's also the document root for a local apache vhost, so it's running directly on the files I'm editing. As far as I'm aware, this is a pretty normal thing to do. I can't figure out how to persuade WebIDE to work with this config - it seems to insist on wanting to FTP (of all things - I've not used FTP for years!) my files somewhere first. The web path is simply '/' because it's a vhost's root folder, but the debug path mapping dialogue won't let me use that. How can I use this config?

Just use context menu on this local folder and select Create 'foldername_here'!

Hello Marcus,

Are you trying to launch PHP run configuration? If yes, please provide the screenshot of a dialog showing your paths and the error message.

Regards,
Kirill

If I correctly understood what you meant, you should enter http://localhost/ in the Web Path field

No, I'm using a setup like this so I can just make folders for new projects and they get their own host names and vhosts automatically without touching apache or DNS config. I think I fixed the config error using Alexey's suggestion - it wasn't clear how to do it without using his method. The config now looks the same as I set it to, but doesn't give an error, so I don't know what's different.

That's quite strange, we'll investigate it further.
