This tutorial explains how to install Xdebug extension to your web server and prepare it to be used for debugging with PhpStorm IDE.
Add the following lines at the end of your php.ini file:
[Xdebug] zend_extension=<full_path_to_xdebug_extension> xdebug.remote_enable=1 xdebug.remote_host=<the host where PhpStorm is running (e.g. localhost)> xdebug.remote_port=<the port to which Xdebug tries to connect on the host where PhpStorm is running (default 9000)>
Since PHP 5.3, you always need to use the 'zend_extension', and NOT 'zend_extension_ts', 'zend_extension_debug' or 'extension'.
The value of 'xdebug.remote_host' can be a host name (e.g. localhost) or an IP address.
The value of 'xdebug.remote_port' is usually 9000. It is default value in Xdebug and PhpStorm. Ensure that the specified port is opened on your client machine.
