  • Easy Access to PHP with built-in eval()
  • Easy Access to Currently Executing Code
  • Userland API
  • SAPI Agnostic - Easily Integrated

  • Improve Everything :)

Installation

To install phpdbg, you must compile the source against your PHP installation sources, and enable the SAPI with the configure command.

cd /usr/src/php-src/sapi
git clone https://github.com/krakjoe/phpdbg
cd ../
./buildconf --force
./configure --enable-phpdbg
make -j8
make install-phpdbg

Where the source directory has been used previously to build PHP, there exists a file named config.nice which can be used to invoke configure with the same parameters as were used by the last execution of configure.

Note: PHP must be configured with the switch --with-readline for phpdbg to support history, autocompletion, tab-listing etc.

Command Line Options

The following switches are implemented (just like cli SAPI):

  • -n ignore php ini
  • -c search for php ini in path
  • -z load zend extension
  • -d define php ini entry

The following switches change the default behaviour of phpdbg:

  • -v disables quietness
  • -s enabled stepping
  • -e sets execution context
  • -b boring - disables use of colour on the console
  • -I ignore .phpdbginit (default init file)
  • -i override .phpgdbinit location (implies -I)
  • -O set oplog output file
  • -q do not print banner on startup
  • -r jump straight to run
  • -E enable step through eval()
  • -l listen ports for remote mode
  • -a listen address for remote mode
  • -S override SAPI name

Note: Passing -rr will cause phpdbg to quit after execution, rather than returning to the console.
