Hi All,

I know this question has been asked numerous times. I went through many of the threads but none of the suggested solutions seem to work for me.

Problem Description:
In Eclipse Helios Build: 20100617-1415, when trying to debug my index.php the page opens up in the internal browser with the following URL:


However the Progress View shows the following message:

Launching: waiting for XDebug session

My environment is configured as follows:

All running on local macine
OS: Windows 7 / 64 bit

XAMPP V1.77 including the following products:

  1. Apache V2.2.21
  2. PHP V5.3.8

My PHP Info Shows the following about XDEBUG:

Note About The Port: I had to assign different port than the default 9000 because 9000 was already taken by another app. Please see below the result of netstat command.

NESTAT - a -b Results


I appreciate any help.
