I’m using PHPStorm on Windows 10 and I cannot access the Docker file system with that IDE. It seems that even though the Docker container is listed under Drives on the Windows Explorer, PHPStorm is not able to access it.
I wonder if there is any IDE with full support for DevKinsta.
As I see it, the main problem is, that Docker is relying on WSL2.
So any tips on how to resolve this or any tips on which IDE is better suited for DevKinsta? It should also be possible to use xDebug.
Please note, however, that it’s typically not recommended to make direct modifications to the files on the running Docker containers. It’s recommended that you make changes external of the Docker containers. The site files should be located in the site path shown in the site info page in DevKinsta.
Additionally, if you pull changes from a staging environment in MyKinsta, changes made within the container may be overwritten.
Please let us know if you have any further questions or need anything clarified!
Thanks for your reply! We have investigated further into a way to mount the WSL files within Windows to make it possible to edit them. We have found it appears you can navigate to “\\wsl.localhost\” in file explorer, and then right click on the docker-desktop-data folder which will present an option in the drop down menu to map this directory as a network drive.
Once it has been mapped as a network drive it should allow you to access the files normally within Windows.
You may also navigate to “\\wsl.localhost\docker-desktop-data\data\docker\volumes\DevKinsta\public\YourSitesName (Replace with your actual site’s name)” first to see if the site files are accessible from there.
Please let us know if you need help with any of these steps! And also please do let us know if this works for you.
