After you successfully built PHP files you have the following options:


Testing PHP pages locally

View in browser - run generated application in web browser. Note that this will not work if you enabled the 'Connect using PHP' option while connecting to your database.


If for for some reason built-in web server doesn't start (nothing happens after you click 'View in browser' button) make sure your antivirus or firewall software doesn't block the web server. Turn it off for a minute and try 'View in browser' one more time. Built-in web server uses ports 8085-8090 so you may want to open them in your firewall.


Open output folder - open Windows Explorer to browse the folder with generated PHP files.


Create desktop application - build and package desktop applications.


Create SQL script - to create SQL script for tables/data transfer to another server.

Testing PHP pages on the remote Web server

Publish via FTP - to upload files to the remote Web server you can use built-in FTP client.
