PHP debugger tool
I am trying to integrate php with eclipse and want to debug it , with features like Step in step out,watches etc.
I found one extension called PHP DBG http://www.php-debugger.com/dbg/installation.php
but i am not able to install it and integrate it,
I am not able to found phpdgb.dll, the download contains .X files and not .dll.
Can any one help me figuring out how we can debug php using this or any other tool thanks
I personally use Zend IDE 5.1 (The newest is 6 but is eclipse based and I don't like it that much). It's $100 but money well worth spending.
I use Nusphere PhpEd which comes with the exact same debugger you are trying to install.
i know for sure xdebug works with eclipse and apache. also i know zend has their own debugger but i don't know what it's called, i think it's called zenddebug? the zend one is the one i use because it is the default debugger with the zend IDE. getting it installed on my webserver was a huge hassle though. i spent maybe 40 hours trying to get it to work before i just installed ZendCore which came with debugging features already enabled.
Thanks for your reply
I cant really afford to buy Zend or any other any how so got to work in open source.
MASTODONT: i download the package you suggested but its again contain php_dbg.dll-4.3.x file its .x file not .dll how to use it.
netbeans also has debug module (with x-debug).
This package contains DLLs for various PHP versions. E. g. "php_dbg.dll-5.1.x" is for PHP 5.1. So you must rename this file
