Remote Debugging in PhpStorm

UPD: Note that this screencast is for 1.0.x only.  Check out tutorial for 2.o.

With PhpStorm and Xdebug you can easily debug your web application right on your server using Remote Debugging. It’s a very convenient way to examine and fix little annoying bugs that often come up very suddenly in a production environment. This video provides a step-by-step guide on how to configure Remote Debugging in PhpStorm using Xdebug.

    Your video is damaged, it’s all black although sound works ok.

    It seems like it’s not working on Linux. Sorry, we will correct it soon.

    Не совсем понял: PhpStorm определил проблемы с настройкой XDebug, после чего ведущий поменял настройки в php.ini, который находился на диске C: и перезапустил веб сервер XAMP, выглядел как локальный web server.

    Я ожидал увидеть какие-то манипуляции с php.ini и apache на удалённом сервере, ведь видео про Remote Debugging!

    You are very attentive, Petr :)
    Yes, I used localhost to show how remote debugging works to simplify demonstration because it works absolutely the same way when using remote host. That’s the idea.
    As regards manipulation with php.ini – of course you should change it on remote server as well as restart Apache at remote server, but I didn’t want to detract focus from IDE setup to all that stuff regarding remote connections etc..
    Hope that it still helped you 😉
