Debugging on a FTP Server, is it possible?

Hi Community

First of all, I'm totaly new to PHPStorm. I'm looking for a new PHP IDE and so I'm testing PHPStorm. Looks really amazing to me but at the moment I have a problem on which I can't find a solution anywhere.

Normally I work directly on the hosting server through FTP. This means that every change i make, it will be promoted directly to the server. Now I was asking myself if it's possible to debug this way? I found a lot of tutorials, but
everywhere it's just explained how to debug localy with XAMP and XDebug. So does anybody knows if it's possible to debug directly on the hosting server? Maybe somebody has a tutorial anywhere?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Actually there are no difference between debugging locally or on the remote server. First of all you need to install Xdebug on your remote server (see http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/WI/Xdebug+installation+guide).

But please note that Xdebug will affect the scripts execution time.

Thank you for feedback!
