Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up Xdebug, part of Eclipse Essential Training.
- Debugging a PHP application has three prerequisites.…First, you need to set your PHP ini settings.…Second, you need to associate Eclipse…with your installation of PHP.…And third, you need to modify your Run…configurations inside of Eclipse.…So let's start out by modifying…our PHP ini file.…Navigate to your Map folder.…
On the Mac it's in your Applications folder.…On Windows it should be in your C drive folder.…So find the Map folder,…in there go inside of the bin folder,…then the php folder,…then php5.6.7…and then in the conf folder…open up php.ini…in a plain text editor,…such as Text Edit, or Notepad.…Remember, you don't want something like…Microsoft Word that's going to apply…extra formatting behind the scenes…with this file.…
We need a plain text editor.…So open up this file…and scroll all the way to the bottom.…At the bottom of your file…you'll find a semicolon…starting the last line.…That's commenting it out.…We want to enable xdebug…so we're going to delete that semicolon.…Xdebug is the name of the debugger…that we're going to be using for this course.…
