Also I pressed 'Listen Debug Connections' button.

Should I enable something else to make it work?

Hi there,

Two good articles, following which you should have it up and running:

My IDE debugger configuration:

This is not your "IDE debugger configuration". All what I see on screenshot is that you have set default values for one of the Run/Debug configurations (yep -- you do not even created one -- just set up defaults).


  • Please upgrade your xdebug to 2.2.1 or newer (it has some bugs fixed), although your version should still allow to at least initiate debug session)
  • You have your IDE key set to "phpstorm" on the screenshot .. but local value (for the session when you got your xdebug config) of xdebug.idekey = dsnisarenko

The problem been solved after removing deployment server from Preferences -> PHP -> Servers.
On the next debug run the new fresh deployment server mappings configuration been created. Works great.

That's not a "deployment server" -- it is a path mappings for debugger to work with (in case you are doing remote debug and/or do have symbolic links when everything is local).

But it is working now -- that's the main thing.
