install xdebug with Zend Server CE and Netbeans 7.0.x

Go to Fedora "Application -> System Tools -> Add/Remove Software" and make sure PHP PEAR and PHP PECL and XDebug are installed already. Then, run the following commands to add xdebug into Zend Server.

#  edit debugger.ini file to disable zend debugger.
#  ; register the extension to be loaded by Zend Extension Manager
# ;zend_extension_manager.dir.debugger=/usr/local/zend/lib/debugger
[root@jiaFedora14 yyjia]# sudo gedit /usr/local/zend/etc/conf.d/debugger.ini

#find where is xdebug.so
[root@jiaFedora14 /]# find /usr/ -name 'xdebug.so'
/usr/lib64/php/modules/xdebug.so

#  Make zend server to load xdegug.so before extension manager is loaded.
#  zend_extension=/usr/lib64/php/modules/xdebug.so
#  zend_extension=/usr/local/zend/lib/ZendExtensionManager.so
[root@jiaFedora14 yyjia]# sudo gedit /usr/local/zend/etc/conf.d/extension_manager.ini

# edit php.ini or other configuration files to have xdebug settings
# [xdebug]
# xdebug.remote_enable=on
# xdebug.remote_handler=dbgp
# xdebug.remote_mode=req
# ;xdebug.remote_connect_back=1
# xdebug.remote_host=192.168.1.190
# xdebug.remote_port=9001
# xdebug.idekey="netbeans-xdebug"
[root@jiaFedora14 yyjia]# sudo gedit /usr/local/zend/etc/php.ini

# Fedora has SELinux enabled by default. I open the port 9001.
[root@jiaFedora14 yyjia]# semanage port -a -t http_port_t -p tcp 9001

# restart Zend Server
[root@jiaFedora14 yyjia]# service zend-server restart

# check xdebug configuration.
[root@jiaFedora14 yyjia]# php -i | grep xdebug

After running all above command and see every thing is correct as expected, we do a simple configuration in Netbeans as shown in figure below,




Some notes:
1) The above steps only install xdebug for one developer. For a team developing environment, we need to install DBGp proxy.

2) I tried "xdebug.remote_connect_back=1" and hope I do not need to specify a fix hostname/ipaddress in php.ini. But, I failure on it. I have not dig deep into it.

  1. Nice job. Do you have the procedure to produce this configuration in Windows?
