PHP 5.4 Support: Built-in web server
By Tomas Mysik on Feb 22, 2012
Hi all, today we would like to show you how easily in NetBeans one can use the PHP built-in web server which will be part of the upcoming PHP 5.4. This functionality will be available in NetBeans 7.2.
Note: For the built-in web server to work, one must install PHP 5.4 (RC 6 available these days). Please notice that there are still some issues that needs to be solved for the final version of NetBeans 7.2.
As I promised, using it is very simple - just open Project Properties of any of your existing projects, select Run Configuration and choose PHP Built-in web server from the Run As combo box. You will see something like this:
As you can see, all the configuration options are available to be set in NetBeans. This configuration panel is also available for new PHP projects wizard.
