Quick Start

  1. Disable the built-in VSCode PHP Language Features.

    • Go to Extensions.
    • Search for @builtin php
    • Disable PHP Language Features. Leave PHP Language Basics enabled for syntax highlighting.

    Note that other (3rd party) PHP extensions which provide similar functionality should also be disabled for best results.

  2. Add glob patterns for non standard php file extensions to the files.associations setting.

    For example: "files.associations": { "*.module": "php" }.

  3. Optionally purchase and enter your licence key by opening the command pallete -- ctrl + shift + p -- and searching for Enter licence key.

Further configuration options are available in the intelephense section of settings.
