Working PDT/Debugger setup (Windows) [message #649777] Thu, 20 January 2011 10:05 Go to next message

Hi, I am a Eclipse newbie but do PHP development for years. After installing Eclipse Helios 3.6.1 for PHP and Cakephp 1.2.x I was trying quite a number of different configurations to get the php debugger up and running.
I was trying to use the Eclipse Install feature to get the Debugger up and running. But I couldn't find any Zend Debugger version which was compatible with the Eclipse download.
The Zend Debugger was not running with the XAMPP environment, so I installed Zend Server CE, which has Apache, PHP 5.3.3 and the Zend Debugger working and deactivated XAMPP.
While I am now able to use the Zend Debugger, I can only go step by step through the php statements. When I set breakpoints, the debugger ignores them and just runs to the end. I saw that this seem to be a common evil to many over the years.

I now would like to know if anybody can tell me which combination of PHP 5.2 or higher, Debugger (Zend or X) and Eclipse (preferably Helios) can actually work.

I was reading the different forums at Eclipse, Zend, Cakephp and what not ... but none of the tips worked for me so far. Maybe it is PHP 5.3.3 and the maybe not yet functioning tools related

Thank you!

Well, seems I had to give up on PHP 5.3.x (5.3.[1-3]) and went back to XAMPP 1.6.8 with PHP 5.2.6. The Zend Debugger (5.2.15) finally stops at every breakpoint.
Is there anybody out there who got it working with PHP 5.3?

OK, I got it to work with PHP 5.3.3 ... after reinstalling the Eclipse plugin 'Zend Debugger for WIndows x86 (Fragment) 5.3.18.v20100905 and Zend Server CE's PHP 5.3.3 (FastCGI) it all seems to work now. Just had to know that there is no Thread Safe Zend Debugger for 5.3.
Now using the Zend Debugger 5.3.19 (nts,vc9) from the Zend Server CE.
So far the debugger stops at all breakpoints.

Update:
I think I got it now ... since there is no tread safe Zend Debugger for PHP 5.3, the Apache 2.x has to be installed as CGI and not as Apache Module (that's how the Zend Zerver CE is doing this).
I now did a standalone Apache 2.2.16 ( CGI/FastCGI) installation within XAMPP, replaced PHP with the NTS/VC9 version to be compatible with the NTS/VC9 5.3.19 Zend Debugger.
I replaced the Zend Server CE as I had some issue with laptop sleep mode, but otherwise the Zend Server CE provides everything to get it going.
