Cryptic error message about "The selection cannot be launched..." [message #1796521] Mon, 15 October 2018 16:45 Go to next message

Hi:

When running the debugger for the very first time after setting it up (as
outlined in my tutorial at
http://robsnotebook.com/php_debugger_pdt_xdebug), I found that I got a
cryptic error message "The selection cannot be launched, and there are no
recent launches". See step 8.a.i of the tutorial.

I found that to get rid of it, for my very first debug session, instead of
using "Debug", I needed to open the debug dialog and click "Debug" in that
dialog to make this error go away.https://cleanmaster.me/ https://facebooklite.vip/ https://mathway.vip/


Can this be fixed?

Thanks,
Rob

Method described in this tutorial it's time-consuming and you might have problem with ajax requests. It make sens only if you want debug CLI script.

Easiest way.:
1. Configure xdebug as described in tutorial, rather than xdebug.remote_host you can use xdebug.remote_connect_back=On : https://xdebug.org/docs/all_settings#remote_connect_back
2. By default Xdebug in Eclipse is configured to accept JIT connection from localhost, you can change to any in Settings / PHP / Debugges / Xdebug
3. Install browser extension. Xdebug Helper for Chrome, Xdebug Helper for Firefox or similar
4. Open page, select on helper debug mode, prepare any request (click/refresh what ever)
5. Eclipse start debugging.

BTW I strongly suggest disable PHP / Debug -> "Break at First Line"
