Just came across this extremely handy tool online. This is how easy all web-based utilities should be.
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. That’s pretty awesome.
Note, it didn’t tell me a couple of parameters I needed, so I am sharing all my changes to php.ini below:
zend_extension = \xampplite\php\ext\php_xdebug-2.1.0-5.3-vc6.dll xdebug.remote_enable=on xdebug.remote_handler=dbgp xdebug.remote_host=localhost xdebug.remote_port=9000
I did this in all of 5 minutes after fooling around with Eclipse PDT + Zend debugger for over an hour.
PS: I checked out a couple of different PHP IDEs and decided on NetBeans today. Let me know if you have any insights since I haven’t played with a bunch of them in recent years.
