Full-text Search in Database using PhpStorm

Did you know you can perform a full-text search in a database using PhpStorm (any IntelliJ based IDE)

This is useful for debugging and investigating why specific markup appears, especially if you can’t find them in the theme or modules.

It’s useful for searching cache tags and markup in the cache tables.

First you’ll need to connect your IDE to your database.


1. Expand Database on the right-hand side

2. Right-click on a database, select Tools -> Full-Text Search.

3. Add your keyword and click on Search.

4. See which tables have the searched keyword at the bottom.
