Remote debugging with PHPEd

Filed under: PHP / MySQL — Jon Phipps @ 5:11 am

The PHPEd IDE offers a remote debugger for your PHP projects. The remote debugger is installed on your web server as a PHP module, and sends the debugging information back to your development computer where PHPEd is running. Because of this, you can debug your code in the environment where it will be living, with the same database, permissions, and http server.

The setup for remote debugging is not difficult, but I think this step-by-step article will help anyone who is using the same setup as I am. Just to be clear, that setup is:

* PHPEd 5.0
* Rackspace Hosted: RedHat Enterprise Linux 4 ES
* PHP 5.2.3
* PuTTY 0.60

Nth Design.

  1. Thanks for the e-mail…I need to look into this. It would make it easier multiple set-ups, right?
