I am attempting to move from phpED to phpStorm. Today is my first day withPHPStorm.
I have read and read the documentation but I'm at a loss. I understand that my project files must be stored locally and that they should be a mirror of what is on my server. PHPStorm should update the server files when I make a change in the project files. That doesn't happen. The only way I can update them is to right click and select "Upload To"
The server is on my local network and the folder with the website files maps to drive w:
When I launch the website http://www.myname.local from Chrome it works just as it should.
However, when I try to run any of the files from phpStorm, it insists on trying to run them in localhost.
Under Deployment->options->mapping the project URL is correct.
So, my problems are...
- keeping remote (network share) files in sync with project files
- configuring phpstorm to launch www.myname.local when I click on run.
I need some help. I know that getting started is quite a learning curve but I love the editor and want to stick with PHPStorm if at all possible.
