i posted this on another board: amp;start=0&S=157315387bc1969a380887df2e7c9241

with apologies, i'm posting it again on this one, where hopefully it will have more interest.

i have been going in circles trying to get Eclipse + php debugging for Drupal working. i have installed Eclipse a couple of times from different sources. then i decided to delete them and pick up the 'all-in-one' version of Eclipse from the Zend site:

(I got the 32 bit for Linux. this is not the Zend Studio upgrade.)

with Eclipse Helios up and running, i installed the XTend Drupal plugin:

I also downloaded the Zend Server-Debugger from this page:

i have some reservations about where I put Eclipse and the Zend Debugger. I put them both in my Drupal root; i.e.,

then i modified the PHP.ini. (I know we're not supposed to do this. however, every time i try to create an INI in the /etc/apache2/conf.d folder, I get an error. i don't know how to make a custom INI.)

i changed the PHP to add these lines:

zend_extension_manager.debug_server=/var/www/Drupal/ZendDebu gger-5.2.14-linux-glibc23-i386/5_2_x_comp

I have closely looked over the paths given for zend_extension and zend_extension_manager.debug_server. The paths are correct.

when i run phpinfo.php, among the many lines of output I see this:
This program makes use of the Zend Scripting Language Engine:
Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2010 Zend Technologies

(I don't see a message indicating the Zend Debugger is working.)

from Eclipse, i have created a project that points to the folder of my Drupal installation. I have created a Debug Configuration that points to the index.php for the particular installation of Drupal i am attempting to debug.

when i try to test the debug configuration i get this familiar error:
"A timeout has occurred on http://localhost/Drupal/foobar/index.php . Please verify the Zend Debugger is properly installed on the server and that the 'dummy.php' is located in your Web Server's document root."

i don't think the problem is the dummy.php, as i copied it into /var/www .

does anyone have any ideas?

thanks in advance.

(in response to a suggestion from someone on another board (besides I commented out the reference in the PHP.ini to Zend_Extension_Manager. Here's my reply to the person who made that suggestion).

...thanks for the reply. i commented out the line in php.ini that refers to the Zend_extension_manager. the php.ini looks like:

i restarted Apache. i also verified (again) that the zend_extension path is correct.

unfortunately, nothing has changed. phpInfo shows the same message; it doesn't indicate the Zend Debugger is working.

also, when i start Eclipse Helios, click 'debug configurations' and then try to test the index.php for my Drupal installation, i get the same error about Zend Debugger and/or the dummy.php.

i clicked on the 'configuration' button on the Debug Configurations page. i changed the document root path. i'm no longer getting the error i mentioned at the top of this thread. instead, now i'm receiving:

a timeout occurred when the debug server attempted to connect to the following client hosts/IPS:

i found these threads which discuss the error message: &S=0e4cdbfcd13d6ea5d4cc662fd90b15db

apparently a lot of people just give up on Zend Debugger and try xdebug instead. i haven't quit on Zend, yet. i'm still trying to figure out how to use it.

i will post a resolution when i have one. thanks.
