Searching for outside assistance with getting xdebug some thing with my setup. Let me have the ability to debug Joomla code.

First allow me to preface stating that about last year I could obtain a version xdebug to utilize Eclipse PDT 2.1 with xampp under Vista 32bit. However, now I am on the new machine, and that i desired to get everything dealing with the most recent versions. Used to by using through this walk-through. Now, attempting to perform the same factor I can not get results.

First, according to the walk-through, I downloaded php_xdebug-2..-5.2.2.dll. Rapidly recognized which i needed an xdebug for php 5.3. So, I discovered the xdebugs Customized Installation Instructions and adopted that. My php.ini section appears to be thus:

[XDebug]
;; Only Zend OR (!) XDebug
zend_extension = "D:\xampp\php\ext\php_xdebug-2.1.0-5.3-vc6.dll"
xdebug.remote_enable=true
xdebug.remote_host=localhost
xdebug.remote_port=10000
xdebug.remote_handler=dbgp
xdebug.profiler_enable=1
xdebug.profiler_output_dir="D:\xampp\tmp"

Which means this got the xdebug to really display in the phpinfo(). But, in Eclipse after i Debug As Php Web page, it in the beginning seems for connecting, if however I step to another type of code the debugger just sits there saying it's walking, indefinitely. Sometimes apache will crash. I attempted ports 9000, and 10000 without any avail.

Things I did discover is, basically make use of the the php_xdebug.dll that accompany XAMPP 1.7.3, I really can connect and step with no issues, EXCEPT, that version of xdebug apparently includes a major bug inside it that triggers my variables to become listed as 'Uninitialized'. So it's essentially useless, however, it will give some hope which i possess some of these things setup properly.

So, my current setup thus: Win7 32bit, XAMPP 1.7.3 (PHP 5.3.1, Apache 2.2.14), Eclipse PDT 2.2

I've limited knowledge about essentially all of the tools here so I am kinda baffled of how to proceed. Any help could be greatly appreciated. I looked a few of the other posts here concentrating on the same problem but many of them seem to be for older versions of those components.

your report is sort of confusing. So far as I realize you, your setup works the moment you replace the XDebug-dll. Your (primary) problem can't be associated with your configurations, so far as additionally you modified zend_extension, obviously.

Though xdebug.remote_port=10000 appears odd. Std is 9000. If you are using 9000, the you need to tell Eclipse in Window/Preferences/PHP/Debug/Debuggers also to pay attention to that port for XDebug.
