Hi there.

I am trying to setup debugging through NetBeans.

The remote server is a Ubuntu 9.10 LAMP box sitting on the Amazon EC2

I installed the server as recommended, then added the php5-dev and
php5-xdebug packages.

My /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d/xdebug.ini file is as below


phpinfo() shows that, after an Apache2 reload, xdebug is there, selected
extracts are below

Configuration File (php.ini) Path /etc/php5/apache2
Loaded Configuration File /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini
Scan this dir for additional .ini files /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d
additional .ini files parsed /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d/curl.ini,


xdebug support enabled
Version 2.0.4

DBGp - Common DeBuGger Protocol $Revision: $

NetBeans is configured properly in so far as I can fetch and upload files
to the Apache2 server, the phpinfo() file that I reproduced above was
generated by file created and uploaded.

However when I try and go into debug mode in NetBeans, I get stuck with

Waiting for Connection (netbeans-xdebug)

I have previously run my phpinfo data through the wizard, gotten the
advice to download the source and compile (which I did on another
instance) but that made no difference.

Please can you help me with what next to try to get this working.
