I hope someone can help, I'm having some difficulty using remote debugging
with netbeans on the windows 7 (professional) CLI.

I'll outline the process I have gone through thus far:
1) Set up php.ini:*


*2) Do php -v to ensure the extention is installed correctly:*

PHP 5.3.1 (cli) (built: Nov 19 2009 09:59:45)
Copyright (c) 1997-2009 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2009 Zend Technologies
    with Xdebug v2.1.0rc1, Copyright (c) 2002-2010, by Derick Rethans
3) Add configuration in netbeans:*

tools > options > general > debugging

Debugger port: 9000
Session ID: netbeans-xdebug

*4) Create a simple php script:*


$var = 1;

$var = 2;

$var = 3;

$var = 4;

$var = 5;

echo $var;


*5) Right click on the file in netbeans and click 'debug':*
(NOTE: added a breakpoint to line 1)

'Waiting For Connection (netbeans-xdebug') *appears in the bottom right
corner of netbeans

*6) In the CLI set environment variable*:

At this step i have tried both:

set XDEBUG_CONFIG="idekey </docs/all_settings#idekey>=netbeans-xdebug"


set XDEBUG_CONFIG=idekey <../../docs/all_settings#idekey>=netbeans-xdebug"

*7) Execute PHP script: *

php xdebugtest.php

output: 5

I'm at a bit of a loss. I cant seem to get netbeans to establish a
connection with the command line and hit the first break point.
Are there any obvious mistakes I have made?

Thanks in advance for any assistance!
