As a follow-up on my previous post, this post explains how you can easily install XDebug on your OSX webdevelopment configuration, making your life as a developer a whole lot easier.
- If you haven’t done it already, read this post.
- Download the pre-compiled XDebug package from the website of ActiveState.
- Take the
xdebug.so-file and put it in
/etc/php.ini(if it doesn’t already exist).
- It could be that the
php.inifile is read only. In that case:
1chmod +w php.ini
- Now edit the php.ini file and add the following at the bottom:
1234[xdebug] zend_extension=/usr/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20090626/xdebug.soxdebug.file_link_format="txmt://open?url=file://%f&line=%1"xdebug.remote_enable = Onxdebug.remote_autostart = 1
- Restart apache:
Done! You can now start debugging your PHP projects with your favorite IDE.
