        thank you.

    • Fabian Picone

      Closing tag ‘?>’ can cause errors. You should not like it from now on.

        • Fabian Picone

          Its PHP Basic. The documentation says: “If a file contains only PHP code, it is preferable to omit the PHP closing tag at the end of the file. This prevents accidental whitespace or new lines being added after the PHP closing tag, which may cause unwanted effects because PHP will start output buffering when there is no intention from the programmer to send any output at that point in the script.”

            thank you very much.

  • Fabian Picone

    Why the update does not happen in the software like before, instead forwarding me to this page for manual download? I dont like this.

    • Eugene Morozov

      Please clarify what version were you on when the new version was released?

      • lelospapoul

        Same happens to me, current version 2017.3.2 (build 173.4127.29)

        • Dmitry Tronin

          Update from any version is available starting PhpStorm version 2018.3 only.
          If you’re on 2017.3.2 – you’ve missed .3.3, .3.4 and so forth. Please follow the instructions at to install the updates one by one. Or else you can just download & unpack 2017.3.7 from the scratch (your settings should be left intact).

      • Fabian Picone

        Already updated it manually, dont know which version exactly it was before. I think the version was a year old.
