Running PHPUnit tests over SSH on Vagrant with PhpStorm 8

More and more PHP developers are shifting to a workflow where they use PhpStorm on their local machine and run and debug their PHP applications on a remote server or Vagrant machine. Which is great! Every project we’re working on would have its dedicated, virtual development machine and we easily share the project configuration and development environment with our team. Even version it through source control.

Since introducing Vagrant support in PhpStorm 7, we’ve had tons of feedback from our users. While PhpStorm has been supporting running PHPUnit on remote servers for quite a while, developers working with Vagrant clearly prefer doing this over SSH instead. And that is exactly what we can now do using PhpStorm 8.
