My question is very similar to this question: http://devnet.jetbrains.net/thread/304553
I upgraded to 2.1.4 a week or so ago. Since then, I cannot debug my projects. I do not use any sym links anywhere, so that should not be the problem. The only way I am able to successfully use the debugger is if I either check off "Break at the first line" or if I actually put a break point at the first line.
When I do either one of these, the debugger will be triggered and will be stopped at the first line. I can continue stepping over or stepping in through the completion of the request. However, if I just continue the script by hitting "Play" then no other break points are honored. If I don't have a break point on the first line, then the debugger is never even triggered.
I have been extremely pleased with PHPStorm thus far, and I am going to be making a recommendation for a debugger for all of my developers in the coming weeks. If I can figure out this issue then PHPStorm is the clear choice of the 3 debuggers we have been evaluating, but this right now is a deal breaker.
Any help is appreciated. I can supply any logs or configuration files needed.
