Downloaded PhpStorm on Mac but doesn't want to open Follow Romeroshane Created August 24, 2022 16:33 Hello, I just downloaded PhpStorm on my Macbook Pro but when I double click to open, nothing happens.
Please try to launch IDE from a command line & share the output generated.
I went on Toolbox and used this "/Users/shaneromero/Library/Application Support/JetBrains/Toolbox" from the Tools Install Location field. I added to my command line but it shows "No such files or directory"
If I use the command open -a PhpStorm from my Applications folder the app will pop up for a quick second but fail to open.
Romeroshane you have to escape spaces on mac. You can do that by surrounding the path with quotes or by using a backslash after a space symbol, here's an article that describes how to do both: https://medium.com/@leedowthwaite/dealing-with-spaces-in-paths-f26856aef06f
Thanks, Dmitry! Sorry but I am not fully well-versed in how to use my terminal. I was able to navigate to the IDE path that I got from my Toolbox app. What do I do after?
I was also able to navigate to Applications then open PhpStorm but it doesn't open. The command line just changes to Shanes_MacBook-Pro:PhpStorm.app
You can find where PhpStorm is installed. Open the Toolbox App, click the "..." icon for the necessary IDE, and select Settings. Expand "Configuration" node & see "Install location" - you can copy the path that way.
Then launch IDE using PhpStorm.app/Contents/MacOS/phpstorm command
