Hi,

I am new to eclipse.

Do I need apache and php installed on my laptop in order to run the debugger? In another word, do I need to set up a local server? (I did download the studio web debugger.)

I have an account at GoDaddy.com. Will this help me to avoid installing apache and php on my laptop if I need to run the debugger?

Thanks for any help in advance.

You don't have to. If your server has the Zend Debugger or XDebug installed, you should be able to connect the PDT debugger to your remote location. Be careful, Zend debugger in a production environment is not advised, but if it is a personal or nonsensitive website go for it.

Also, if you are using a shared server, you may not have the ability to install the Zend Server Community Edition or XDebug on the server itself. If you don't have that option, you will need to either use a local apache, php, zend installation or install using a Virtaul Machine running something like CentOS.

Hi Jason,

Thanks for the reply.

How do I connect to the godaddy though? (It is a shared server. I think. But I would like to try.)

Which version of PDT should I install on my laptop?

Thanks for any help in advance.
