using visual studio code to edit PHP code on the IBM i. What I do is map the htdocs folder to the PC as a network drive. Then navigate to a folder within htdocs and open that folder in visual studio code. But VS code puts up an info message saying "cannot validate since no PHP executable is set" Help on this error says to set the path of the php.exe file. And that I need to be running PHP 7.

Where to find the php.exe file? And do you think I will have success using the features of VS Code? Not sure if VS Code will require the server to be on the same system as the VS code editor.
