PHPSTORM settings not saving

I'm using ubuntu 22 and phpstorm latest version I facing an issue like "Unable to save setting" and how to solve this.

Due to this issue every time the project layout changes to the default setting.



Hi there,

Does it happen with all projects or this one only/some projects?

1. I Suggest to check idea.log file for possible hints/exceptions -- "Help | Show Log in XXX" . That will give a clue where to look further.

2. It could be file permissions issue (not sure if global/IDE-wide settings or project ones).


You can also share your idea.log file with us by e.g. uploading it at or contacting us directly via Help | Contact Support


Yes thanks Andriy its due to folder permission. now working fine
