With these additional configuration values in both php.ini files:


This way, the VM side of things comes set up out of the box for interactive debugging. It will attempt to connect to the host on each script execution. If there is no debugger listening on the host, it will continue with script execution without issue or delay.

True, but Scotchbox is intended for development purposes, not production systems. Same goes for XDebug. You wouldn't run it on a production system.
