Setting up Xdebug
Clone this wiki locally
To be able to debug PHP with pugdebug, you need to have Xdebug properly set up for remote debugging.
Please read Xdebug's remote debugging documentation to learn all about it's remote debugging capabilities.
This document provides only example configurations that should help you get started more quickly.
A simple configuration enabling remote debugging:
xdebug.idekey=pugdebug xdebug.remote_enable=1 xdebug.remote_port=9000 xdebug.remote_host=127.0.0.1
An example of Xdebug configuration for remote debugging a project that is inside a vagrant virtual machine:
xdebug.idekey=pugdebug xdebug.remote_enable=1 xdebug.remote_port=9000 xdebug.remote_connect_back=1
Do note that when debugging CLI scripts from a vagrant virtual machine, the
remote_connect_back setting will not work, and we need to use the
remote_host setting. In that case, the Xdebug configuration should look something like:
xdebug.idekey=pugdebug xdebug.remote_enable=1 xdebug.remote_port=9000 xdebug.remote_host=184.108.40.206
You can find the IP address to use for the
remote_host setting by issuing the
following command on the host machine:
and a part of the output will include something like this:
6: vboxnet2: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UNKNOWN group default qlen 1000 link/ether 0a:00:27:00:00:02 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff inet 220.127.116.11/24 brd 18.104.22.168 scope global vboxnet2 valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever inet6 fe80::800:27ff:fe00:2/64 scope link valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
and on the third line of that output we can see the IP address of
