Eclipse for PHP Developers

PHP 5.6

PHP 5.6.5

Zend Engine v2.6.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2014 Zend Technologies
with Zend OPcache v7.0.4-dev, Copyright (c) 1999-2014, by Zend Technologies
with Xdebug v2.2.7, Copyright (c) 2002-2015, by Derick Rethans
--------------------------------------------------------------------------


I have the above environment(s). I would like to debug a PHP web app on a remote server, without having to run (or have) a local copy of the site.

I found some instructions in the Eclipse Help Contents on doing this

http://127.0.0.1:40184/help/topic/org.eclipse.php.help/html/tasks/debugging/troubleshooting_remote_debugging/index.html?cp=9_3_19_6

However, the instructions are only for the Zend debugger. I'm not sure that the remote site ( see above ) I want to debug has the Zend debugger. It looks like it has the Xdebug debugger.

Are the instructions the same, or would I only have to alter the php.ini for the Zend Debugger?

Are there instructions for complete remote debugging with Eclipse and Xdebug only ( without needing anything locally )?

Thanks.

xDebug supports remote debugging by design but by default it's limited to localhost by default. See this article: https://wiki.eclipse.org/Debugging_using_XDebug

I've seen that article, but I didn't find it helpful as the example is about localhost debugging.

I am trying to figure out how to use Xdebug on a remote server, to debug a PHP site on that remote server.

I am also trying to do it without having Apache & PHP set up on my local machine where my Eclipse is.

Yesterday I feel I got a little bit closer by making a "Synchronized PHP Project" of the PHP files and using the remote server base URL as a "server" in Eclipse.

Still doesn't work and I am not sure what to do.

I followed the Eclipse help docs in how to set up a debub configuration, but the "Test" button next to the "Xdebug" label is greyed out. I'm stumped as to what I could have left out.
