Installing PDT on Debian Linux [message #98550] Sun, 14 June 2009 17:24 Go to next message

Hello everyone...
I'm a C/C++ developer but I'm new to PDT and not heavily experienced
with Eclipse yet; though I've used it considerably for some Java work. I
need some advice for installing PDT on my home Debian Linux box.

I have already installed Eclipse Gannymede and I also have Xdebug
installed. I had tried debugging PHP with VIM and Xdebug and am now
thinking of trying out the Eclipse PDT with Zend debugger install. I have
Apache running on my box.


--------- QUESTIONS: ----------

1. Can I install PDT and Zend debugger without removing anything currently
installed or would I need to remove something currently installed? If so,
which Zend PDT should I install?

2. I do not currently understand how PHP, Apache and the Zend debugger
work with each other (if at all). I have PHP5 running on my machine now.
If I install the Zend Debugger, does it use it's own PHP or does it use
the php binary now installed on my machine? And when I run Zend Debugger
in Eclipse, does it use my currently-installed Apache or does it use some
other method to debug the PHP?

Any RELIABLE answers to these questions are appreciated.

In case you are not aware, PDT supports Xdebug.

Hello Dave,
Yes I was aware of this but I had the impression that going the Zend
way might be easier and perhaps better.

However if others are using Xdebug (on Linux) with Eclipse and are
very happy with it, I'd be interested to hear about it.

To install my Xdebug I did: "apt-get install php5 Xdebug" then modified
my /etc/php5/conf.d/xdebug.ini as follows:

xdebug.remote_enable = 1
xdebug.remote_port = 9000
xdebug.remote_host = localhost


The "Eclipse PDT All-in-one" looks good also. Is it practical to
install this "All-in-one" on my current system (without removing my
current LAMP setup)?

It won't affect your LAMP setup. As you are on linux you should ensure you are using at least Java 5
on your system and use that to launch PDT. Your system might be configured with an older version of
java or even the GCJ version and these won't work with PDT.

What won't affect my LAMP installation? My posts discuss three possible
options.

I started doing the install of ZEND Server Community Edition using
"aptitude install zend ce" and the installation process presented me with
an option to uninstall my Apache and PHP. I'm not sufficiently up to speed
on the "aptitude" tool to be certain but I believe that this may actually
be optional so that I could reject removal of Apache/PHP and still end up
with a valid installation of Zend Server CE. But I'd rather be sure
before proceeding so I don't have to learn by experimentation.

As this is the PDT forum, I assumed your were referring to when you install PDT from eclipse. Sorry
I know nothing about ZEND Server.

Hi,
How did you install PDT on Debian? We are using Debian 4.0 i386 Linux server. I would love to install eclipse and start using Zend debugger. Please reply on how a LOT of you are already doing this?

Thanks
GT
