Hi @aslanhuseynov,

It’s easier to install PhpStorm locally (on your machine) and use VPS as a server which you deploy your application to. Please see Quick Start guide at

In regards to Apache/Nginx and a database, you’ll need to configure this for your Application. You can see here how to deploy a LAMP stack and host your website/application on it:

A “LAMP” stack is a group of open-source software that is typically installed together to enable a server to host dynamic websites and web apps. This term is actually an acronym which represents the Linux operating system, with the Apache web server. The site data is stored in a MySQL database, and dynamic content is processed by PHP. In this guide, we will install a LAMP stack on an Ubuntu 20.04 server.
