Crash on Second project open

Hi,

I'm having issues with PHPStorm at the moment as it frequently freezes when opening a second project.

Most of my googling of this issue has pointed to ensuring I have the latest JB SDK.  I used the plugin to find and install the latest version but still have issues.

I do find the version numbering of the SDK confusing so may have picked the wrong one, could someone advise which is the best SDK to use with PHPStorm?

I'm running version 2018.2.2 on a Mac

Thanks

Looks similar to https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-194737. Do you have crash logs (files with names like java_error_in_phpstorm_*.log in your user home directory)?

Yes looks exactly like that I do have quite a few java error logs in my home directory.  I'll upload them to the issue you've linked

 

Thanks

Is there any workaround for this issue?! I do have this problem and can't even start the program, because it automatically opens the last 2 projects and hangs every time on the second one, forcing me to kill it in the Task Manager (v. 2020)

Is it exactly the same issue as described above? Do you have any crash reports that you may share?

On further inspection it seemed to be another kind of misconfiguration for the 2nd project. Deleting the .idea folder actually resolved the issue. Still it's unclear why it froze on me. There was also a database configuration involved and a folder linked to the WSL subsystem. I heard the latter can be problematic at times.

But right now it's working again! Sorry for the disturbance!
