Xdebug on IIS 7

Hi.. I've been focred to move development to Windows. Now that I got that off my chest :)  - I need some help. I am having a hella time getiting xdebug to work. I got IIS running and PHP (using the PHP manger) running just fine. The xdebug extension is also running fine (I verified this by using xdebug's [website] phpinfo checker) but no matter what I do it just wont fire.

I'v tried in Chrome and Firefox (both have their xdebug extensions  installed). And I've made sure the extensions were active and that PHPStorm was listening.

My settings in my ini are:

zend_extension = C:\PHP\ext\php_xdebug-2.2.2-5.4-vc9-nts.dll

According to docs from MS that is all I really need. Any advise?


Hi there,

There is NO difference between Linux/Mac and Windows in configuring xdebug (except OS specific things like path to the file or alike).

I suggest referring to this article/manual -- it has all minimum required settings: http://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/PhpStorm/Xdebug+Installation+Guide

So far you are definitely missing
