I have installed NetBeans IDE 7.1.1 and want to be able to debug.

I'm running Windows XP 32-bit

Here's my Summary based on phpinfo. The location to move the downloaded file
in line 2 what also blank before installing xdebug.

As you can see in line 2 of the Summary it did not tell me where to put the
dll so I put it in c:\xampp\php


In the php.ini I set zend_extension = \php_xdebug-2.1.4-5.3-vc9.dll but that
didn't work so I then set it to zend_extension =

I also set the following 4 statements in the c:\xampp\php\ php.ini

xdebug.remote_enable = 0

xdebug.remote_handler = "dbgp"

xdebug.remote_host = "localhost"

xdebug.remote_port = 9000


All four lines were commented out originally.


When I try to debug in NetBeans I only get a "waiting for connection
(netbeans-xdebug)" indicator at the bottom but it never makes a connections.


Can you tell me what I need to do differently to get xdebug to work?

Thank you,


Don Nicoll
