pear install pecl/xdebug-beta
pecl install xdebug-beta

should work.

If it says that then Xdebug is indeed already loaded.

It's supposed to be in some of the output of phpinfo() , however your
configuration might only enable Xdebug for the CLI (command line
interface). There you can verify whether Xdebug is loaded with:

php -v, it should show something like:
