Debugging with PhpStorm
To make the upcoming weekend even more enjoyable, we are glad to announce availability of Debugging with PhpStorm extended tutorials series which now covers all possible PHP debugging scenarios.
In addition to our most-read zero-configuration web application debugging with Xdebug and PhpStorm, we’ve prepared a similar tutorial for Zend Debugger users. To start with debugging in PhpStorm, tutorials on Xdebug and Zend Debugger installation are also a good use.
In Using the PhpStorm Debugger tutorial, we are exploring how to use the PhpStorm Debugger to step through the source code while it’s running, how the debugger tool window works, what types of breakpoints exist, how to watch variables and edit them at runtime, and more.
For those working on PHP CLI scripts, Debugging PHP CLI scripts with PhpStorm tutorial covers various cases to fire up a debugger in no time. If the remote environment is used (e.g. remote server, VM, etc), make sure that Remote PHP Interpreters are configured. PHPUnit and Behat can be also debugged and profiled with PhpStorm, and the entire workflow is covered in Debugging and Profiling PHPUnit and Behat Tests with PhpStorm tutorial.
Remote debugging in PhpStorm via SSH tunnel tutorial is suitable for those debugging on the remote machine (e.g. remote server, VM, Vagrant), and it explains how to use an SSH tunnel to setup a secure connection between our development machine and a remote server for smooth debugging workflow.
There are also some advanced debugging scenarios covered by dedicated tutorials, such as:
- Debugging PHP Web Applications with Run/Debug Configurations
- Simultaneous debugging sessions with PhpStorm
- Multi-user debugging in PhpStorm with Xdebug and DBGp proxy
And if you experience any problems while debugging with PhpStorm, Troubleshooting PhpStorm Debugging guide gets you fully covered.
For those who’s up to videos, have a look at this Debugging PHP with PhpStorm webinar recording:
Please leave your feedback here, and we’ll be glad to incorporate it in future versions of our materials.
Debug with pleasure!
