Hi All:

This problem has been bothering me all day. I can run Eclipse Helios, PHP 5.2, Apache 2.2, on Windows Vista Business fine. It completes the script as expected.

When I run the same working script as debug (using Zend) I receive an error saying cannot find file or directory. When I examined the php.ini file that Zend creates and places in the


I noticed that it has written at the top of the file:


and down within the php.ini file where I have defined the include_path it has been removed! Why would it do this?

I know that it has found the proper php.ini file because I placed a comment before and after the include_path that was unique. Yet when I run phpInfo() some of the values suggest it is not finding the php.ini at all? For instance:

Configuration File (php.ini) Path C:\Windows
(But I know the php.ini file located at "c:\PHP" is the php file that Zend is copying and placing in the User area and I know when I run the script normally that the includes are found which could only happen if the include_path defined in MY php.ini file was being found and used.) There is no php.ini file in "c:\Windows" and when as an experiment I placed the same one as in "c:\PHP" I get the same results!

Other phpInfo() values:

Loaded Configuration File

include_path . .


Does anyone know why this is happening? Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

this is some kind of feature. You'll have to define the include paths for your project (Right Click on your Project -> Include Path -> Configure Include Path), they'll then be added to the include path of your debug session.

Hi Axel, fantastic thanks for the help.

I should have looked for that - I'm used to depending on config files to make all the settings.

For anyone else out there that wants to use a folder that is not within the Eclipse Workspace or Project directory structure you have to go to the Libraries tab rather than the Source tab (which is restricted to the current project directory structure) to add what they call an 'External Source Folder'.

Nice! Once I added that external folder, that is the same as the include_path in the php.ini, my script executed just as it did when run in the standard mode and the debugger stepped through the code as expected. VERY NICE.

Much thanks.
