I feel a bit stupid but I can't find an option tio create new project from existing files. What I want to do, is to open an sftp connection to my server.
Currently I use it as a mounted web disk but it's working a bit slow...
Go to menu File | New Project from Existing Files:
Then choose "Web server is on a remote host, files are accessible via FTP/SFTP"
I attached the screenshots for PhpStorm 5.0.4.
Here is a video for PhpStorm 3.0 (but there is no significant difference in creating project from existing files): http://tv.jetbrains.net/videocontent/working-with-remote-project-in-phpstorm-and-webstorm
Btw, the direct work with remote files is not supported (good performance is not guaranteed).
Yeah, that's where it should be I guess.. but it isn't.
I have the latest EAP of PHPStorm and also version 2 and neither has that option :/
Have I somehow disabled that or what?
Make sure that bundled "Remote Hosts Access" plugin (which is responsible for FTP/SFTP/FTPS/etc functionality) is enabled in "Settings | Plugins".
