Please note this article has been changed to be flexible enough to allow set-up of Xdebug for any Xamp environment (Windows/linux/mac). Also it directs you to use the Chrome Xdebug plugin so you can control when Xdebug is enabled for your application straight from Chrome without changing your php configuration and restarting Apache.

These are the different steps required to get the installation working

  1. Install the Xdebug PHP module in your php.ini - download the Xdebug module and enable it in PHP
  2. in eclipse configure the debug options to use Xdebug as default debugging tool
  3. Install and configure Xdebug Chrome Plugin
  4. Test the whole functionality from the browser

 Go to the next page for detailed instructions on step 1.
