Remote debug with xdebug

Hi,

I'm on PhpStorm 2.1.5.

I usually debug with xdebug and PhpStorm on local projects, and it works fine. I use the xdebug helper under chrome.

Now I'm working on a remote project, which I opened with "Open directory" on a mounted drive.
Debug is not working (doesn't detect incoming connection, doesn't stop on breakpoints), but I don't know why. I tried to follow the video about remote debug, but it's quite old and I can't see option "debug -> remote" as it says.

May be I have to open this project as "New project from existing files -> remote server", but I try to avoid this as I don't want to download the whole project, it's huge.

Thanks for your help.
Lo

Hello Laurent,

Please ensure that Xdebug is installed correctly on the remote server. If you are not familiar with Xdebug installation please attach your 'phpinfo()' output (see http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/WI/Xdebug+installation+guide).

Thank you for feedback!

Hey Nikolay,

I missed the xdebug.remote_host directive... Works just fine now.
Many thanks, your link really helped, sounds stupid now but I've been stuck on this for days.

Laurent
