Can someone please explain me the debug possibilities?

Hi,
I work with a local Apache and PHP and the Framework cakePHP.
I love to work with PHPStorm but I think there are many functionalities which I still haven't discovered.
I would like to understand, if I can use the PHP debugger and if it makes sense for my type of work?
Until now I haven't used any debugger at all. I have the PHP error messages which helped me so far.
So - is there any need to the programm internal debugger? Or is this for other programming languages?
I look forward to hear from someone!

Bye

Hello Heidi,

Sorry for delay.

Yes, you can use debugger and it will definetely improve your workflow. I suggest you to start with Xdebug as a debugger extension.

Thank you for feedback!
