On the Output directory screen you can choose output directory where all generated files will be saved.


PHPRunner comes with built-in web server (Apache). In most cases you can leave all settings on this page "as is", click Build and View in browser on the next screen. Built-in web server won't interfere with your existing web server if you have one.



In some cases you may want to view generated application using your own web server. In this case switch to I have my own web server option and enter URL manually. You should change output directory as well to one of web server subdirectories (i.e. C:\xampp\htdocs\project1 if you use XAMPP).


yellowbulbNote: If you don't have a web server and want to install one, check How to install local server.


Select the Full build check box to perform full build of the project. Otherwise, partial (faster) build will be performed.


Compress javascript files option allows to compress generated Javascript files leading to faster load times. Unless you need to debug Javascript code leave this option on.  

Server database connections

To create new database connection, click the New button. Then specify connection name and settings. Click OK.



If you are using MySQL locally, database connection settings may be as follows:




When uploading files to the server, you may use the following settings:
