Description David Vancouvering 2007-12-04 01:28:35 UTC
Right now when you create a new PHP project, you have to pick the server.  It should be auto-picked instead if there is
only one.  If there is more than one, Apache should be auto-picked as the most common server for PHP.

A small thing, but important, making it as easy as possible to build a PHP project.

We have decided that user should select server for project manually. 
To be aware about project that will be used.
Otherwise it is possible that user will upload files to server where they are not expected...

do you think apache server auto selection will work for most users?
Comment 2 Andrew Korostelev 2007-12-04 09:37:56 UTC
additional problem with preselected apache:
There can be several hosts in one httpd.conf (main and virtual hosts).
We can't decide which of them should be selected.

I think the common case is that one server will be registered, so for that common case, we should auto-select the server
that's there.  There is this feeling of "why do I have to *tell* you what server I want to use?  I only have one
registered.  Do I have to explain *everything* to you?" :)).

I agree things become more unclear when there are multiple servers registered.
