PHPStorm Remote Deployment problem

Hello. I have a problem with PHPStorm running the FTP file. I would like to work on a file from the server at the same time to have a preview without having to send the file to the server. Copying to a local disk and uploading back to FTP is quite an arduous task. When I click on the browser icon I get "remoteDeploymentFS: //%3C487cfc04-fd03-4fcb-8d34-5c113f18a406%3E/index.php" instead of previewing the changes I introduced in index.php. Is there any way to solve this? I spent 10 hours on Friday looking for a solution, but to no avail.

Do I understand it correctly, this is a non-project file and no deployment is configured?

Are you using the "Browse remote host" option to open/edit the file and clicking the browser icon in editor area? (I have just tried that and could confirm that nothing good happens, I don't even have a full path in the browser, just an empty path in address line).

The only option here is a deployment configuration that would let PhpStorm know what URL it's supposed to use for a remote file.

Please create one at Settings | Build, Execution, Deployment | Deployment and set the correct Web server URL there.
