What has happened to my PhpStorm Settings?

Take a look at this:

The first thing is the fact that all my Project Files are highlighted in yellow. That's different than what I had yesterday. Initially, I didn't think that was a big deal, but if I go to edit any files, I get this:

I'm still pretty new to PHP Storm, so I don't know what's happened, but something's awry.

Furthermore, I was able to compare the file that I was working on to the one that was currently deployed on the Repository I had configured in my settings.

Now, I get this:

The greyed out values were in black this morning. And the "Default Server" was "QA Server" - which is what I currently have in my Git->Deployment->Configurations

And speaking of Configurations, they all went away and I had to re-enter them.

So, I can't save my changes, I can't compare my file to what's currently deployed and I have no clue as to why.

Any ideas?
