When developing PHP applications, chances are at one point we will be deploying them. During development we may want to deploy our application to a testing/staging server or a Vagrant box. And once release day is there we want to make sure our carefully crafted code makes it to production. We’re happy to announce several resources that will help doing all these tasks!
First of all, we’ve just released a series of tutorials around deployments using PhpStorm:
- An introduction to deploying PHP applications with PhpStorm to get started. We also published a short video on deployment and remote hosts in PhpStorm.
- Synchronizing changes and automatic upload to a deployment server, enabling some additional scenarios like deploying when launching a debugging session.
- And since no server configuration is the same… Troubleshooting Deployments in PhpStorm answers common questions around configuration, as well as some tips and tricks.
Next, we’ve recently done a webinar on the topic. How easy is it to connect to remote hosts from PhpStorm and copy over files from our project to the server? Can we do that when committing code to VCS? This screencast covers the basics as well as how we can map different folders in our project to different folders on the server, synchronize application code and more. And since deployment can be more than copying files, Phing and database deployment is also covered.
Develop with pleasure!
