I'm used to PHP debugging with Xdebug & PHPStorm. I open PHPStorm and I choose "Start listen for PHP Debug Connections". I set a breakpoint. And then I browse to my local website, I make sure the Xdebug helper is on and when I load my page, PHPStorm jumps to the foreground with the php code halted on that line of code where I'd set a breakpoint. So everything works like it should, right?
Today I was programming some autocomplete functionality for a search input field with Ajax. When the user starts typing, an Ajax call is made to a php file that retrieves data from the db.
I tried several hours but PHPStorm doesn't start debugging the php code that my Ajax file requests. The code gets executed, but no matter how many breakpoints I create, PHPStorm doesn't start debugging these lines of code. Did I forget something? I couldn't find any help in previous topics here on the Jetbrains community... Is it because of the Xdebug Helper browser extension?
