Debug PHP — Xdebug with your IDE (NetBeans, Eclipse, etc.)

I came across an extremely handy tool online for setting up my local development environment to debug PHP.

It provided me with a link to the file I needed, the location where I should copy it, and the config file changes I needed in my php.ini. Note, it didn’t tell me a couple of parameters I needed, so I am sharing all my changes to php.ini.
