PHP Servers Preferences Preferences

The PHP Servers Preferences page will display a list of your currently configured servers and allow you to add servers or edit settings for existing servers. The server settings will be used for debugging/profiling files on a remote server.

The PHP Servers Preferences Preferences page is accessed from Window | Preferences | PHP | PHP Servers Preferences.

One server configuration setting is configured by default and will point to the URL http://localhost.


You can benefit from Zend's expertise by using the Zend Server , which includes the Zend Debugger, in order to perform optimal debugging and profiling functionalities. See Zend Server Integration for more information.
If you have a Zend Server installed on your local machine it is automatically detected and configured as the default server in the PHP Servers list. See Configuring Zend Server Settings in Zend Studio for more information.
