How to set php executable path vscode inside docker container?

To set the php.validate.executablePath in Visual Studio Code (VS Code) when running PHP inside a Docker container, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open the VS Code settings by going to Preferences > Settings (on macOS) or File > Preferences > Settings (on Windows).
  2. In the search box, type "php.validate.executablePath" and select the "Edit in settings.json" option. This will open the settings.json file in the VS Code editor.
  3. In the settings.json file, add a line with the following content:
"php.validate.executablePath": "docker exec -t CONTAINER_NAME php"

Replace CONTAINER_NAME with the name of your Docker container.

  1. Save the settings.json file and close it.

That's it! The php.validate.executablePath setting should now be set to the path of the php executable inside your Docker container.

Note that the php.validate.executablePath setting is used by the PHP extension for VS Code to validate your PHP code as you type. It is not related to the path of the php executable on your host machine.
