Hi all,
I'd like to debug a PHP application (in this case a Drupal site) on a *remote* server (a virtual machine used to develop the site).
I've installed on the remote server xdebug and I've added these settings to the file php.ini:
zend_extension = /usr/lib/php/20151012/xdebug.so
xdebug.remote_enable=1
xdebug.remote_host=<the_ip_of_my_pc>
xdebug.remote_port=9000
xdebug.remote_handler="dbgp"
xdebug.remote_mode="req"

Now what are the steps that should I follow to configure Eclipse Neon2 on my pc?
Should I have a local copy of the site?
Now I'm editing the files with the Remote Explore with Sftp.

Is there a tutorial ?
I've found only a tutorial for debugging on a local machine: https://wiki.eclipse.org/Debugging_using_XDebug.

Thank you very much

cld

This is the documentation for remote debugging from the Xdebug site
https://xdebug.org/docs/remote

I have never tried this myself, I do all my debugging locally.

Thank you very much, but as all the online documentation it deals about how to debug php/Drupal with Eclipse with a local setup, not with a remote development server.
