Changes to Remote Connection Keep-Alive in PhpStorm 2016.1

Posted on by Gary Hockin

PhpStorm has always had great features that helped you to manage code and databases that are hosted on remote servers. These features have been improved in PhpStorm 2016.1 as you can now keep these remote connections alive.

Whether you’re working with remote interpreters, or remote code bases, PhpStorm 2016.1 will now (by default) send the correct keep-alive information so that the connection is not closed after every operation.

When using (S)FTP, you can configure the keep alive options using the Advanced options… button, where you can select how often the keep alive message is sent, and which command to use to keep the connection alive. The defaults are 300s and NOOP respectively.

Keep Alive

This will see a significant speed increase for those who are using PhpStorm’s features that create a lot of remote activity, like the auto upload functionality.
