    Please, fix it so you don’t need to download files.
    It would be much more better that user can click “update” and PHPStorm will automatically download and update itself, without opening browser, etc.

    • Oleg

      In addition, it is very sad, when doing minor update from 6.0.0 to 6.0.2 , it asks for:
      * uninstall old version (why??)
      * delete cache, etc
      * “where to install” ?

      after installation is complete, I will have to recreate all my pinned buttons on windows taskbar

      Please, streamline process..

      • Mikhail Vink

        We are really sorry for the inconvenience. Unfortunately, normal patch update for 6.0.0 -> 6.0.1 couldn’t be completed and you had to download a full copy of 6.0.1. However, we’ve worked on streamlining the process and there are patches available for 6.0.1 -> 6.0.2 update and they work fine. The next minor update patches will be in place as well.

        • Nicole Cordes

          Why isn’t that possible from the EAP versions as well?

          • Mikhail Vink

            EAP and Stable versions are quite different when it comes to patch updates, so patches are provided for EAP->EAP and Stable->Stable versions separately.

      • Owen Winkler

        While we’re talking about the “uninstall during the installer”, I have two peeves: 1) The uninstaller always leaves two files in the installation directory ( and PhpStorm.exe.vmoptions), which makes it impossible to install directly to the same directory after an uninstall without manually deleting things. 2) PhpStorm always wants to install in a new version directory. I only ever want to install into a major version number directory. Why doesn’t the installer simply install into the directory it just uninstalled from? Strange.

    Codestyle formatting enhancements …..


    Fix this!

    • Mikhail Vink

      It’s currently open. Our developers will take care of this bug. Thank you!

    • petr

      may I add a “please” word to this request? thanks:)

    • demonkoryu

      What a rude boy.

  • JonoCoetzee

    I’m getting an Access Denied errors while trying to update.

  • Peter Lauge

    I can not debug any project any more, after this update :-(

    • Mikhail Vink

      Could you please try File | Invalidate Caches and if it doesn’t help report a new issue to with full description and screenshots?

      Thank you!

      • Peter Lauge

        I works fine again. I also did an update of my MAMP, and did not change the php ini file.

  • Chris

    Is there sass syntax highlighting yet?
    Please I really need SASS highlighting, handlebars, Laravel and Blade Template engine support.
    When coding in Laravel I don’t get any auto complete :(
    (note: objects are auto loaded on the fly)
    Thanks :)

    • Masnun

      For Laravel auto completion, this one works fine for me –

      Just clone the repo on your project root. Exclude “vendor” from project directories. Should work fine.

      • Masnun

        @Mansun thanks have ide helpers running now, much better auto-complete.

        Templating – Views – Blade
        This is still a big issue. Code in tags {{ }} does nothing.
        1. PHP parsing, error check would be nice!
        2. Auto complete would be great!


    • Mikhail Vink

      Yes, there is a SASS highlighting and even file watchers in PhpStorm 6. As for Blade template engine please vote for this issue to be implemented in the issue tracker at

      • Bruno

        A file watcher for Compass would also be really great! Now i need to use CodeKit for my SASS -> CSS because I use Compass… Is this going to be implemented in one of the next releases?

        • Chris


          Use command line: compass watch
          so easy.

          Also see: LiveReload (freeee :)

          With both of those, can update your SASS file and web page will auto reload.
          PS: Probably a way to configure livereload to update page on any changes throughout entire project, not sure.

    when I search in file(ctrl+f) with chinese, the character strings are messy code

  • Simon

    should this version number be 6.0.3? i have 6.0.2 already 😉

    • Mikhail Vink

      Well, it should be 6.0.2 – we don’t have 6.0.3.. Probably you have 6.0.2 EAP? However, patch update was available for 6.0.1 -> 6.0.2 so you could update just in one click..

  • Jayde Moors

    Any chance of another upcoming promotion for PHPStorm? I missed the one in April by a day and have been checking frequently for another special. :)

    • Mikhail Vink

      There are currently no ongoing promotions. Stay tuned – if any we’ll announce in the blog and social media.

  • cappie

    Great update for one of the most awesome editors.. thanks for the update!

    And don’t let yourself be put down by all these ungrateful bastards here.. people that don’t have anything to complain usually are so hard-working that they don’t have the time to reply :)

    • Nick G.

      Another very satisfied customer here. I don’t usually check the blog at all because I don’t need to, everything works perfectly fine and I don’t give it a second thought. To me, that’s a clear indicator of a great tool!

  • leo

    No response after i clicked “download” from default server.

    Restart does not help.

    Please let me know how to fix.


  • Barry Margolin

    When I tried the automatic update, I got a screen listing lots of plugin files that couldn’t be installed because of “Access Denied”. I cancelled and downloaded the full installer.

    • Barry Margolin

      The problem seems to be that when you install the application from the full installer, by just copying from the disk image, it copies the ownership and permissions. All the files are owned and writable only by user ID 505, which doesn’t even exist on my computer. The directories are owned and writable only by root. But the updater never asks for my password, so I don’t think it can run with root permissions.

    • Tomas

      The same happened to me. I just chown’d the complete phpstorm folder to my current user and the upgrade work correctly.

      • Seth Livingston


        sudo chown -R /opt/pycharm-3.0/

  • Paolo

    I agree. PHPStorm is one of the best IDEs out there for PHP if not the best.

  • Bernardo

    It seems the LESS file watcher is not working. Before the update, my .less files would compile to .css, now they won’t!

    Besides that, it seems like the file watcher finaly remembers it’s settings. To bad a new (even worse) bug occurs now.

  • Pascal Mathis

    Please finally fix that issue:

    I’m working a lot with my singleton-traits which are really useful (example:, but unfortunately it’s a pain in the ass to code when all the methods of my singleton objects aren’t resolved properly.
