PHPStorm and error messages

When I'm currently coding using PHPStorm I tend to have a window open to the Linux server in which I'm "tailing" the error log for the site I'm working on.

To do this I have to SSH into the server and have a terminal window open.

Is there any way within PHPStorm to open and keep the most current parts of error log files visible? Perhaps even multiple log files at once would be desirable.


Thanks in advance!

You can open remote log files by configuring a ftp/sftp/ftps connection to that server. But it would open those files entirely & it wouldn't automatically refresh them.

You can instead open multiple SSH sessions to that server using a terminal inside IDE and to the tail log commands there. You can drag then move the terminal to editor & have multiple tabs opened anywhere you like:
