I`m unable to configure in IDE or install properly Zend debugger.

  • Installed php5.6 libapache2-mod-php5.6 and so on.
  • Downloaded Zend debugger for php5.6 separate from other zend stuff. (It last available separate from zend studio, thats why I choose php5.6)
  • Copy dummy.php to document root, check in browser it works(empty page without errors)
  • Add following to php.ini: $ tail -n 10 /etc/php/5.6/apache2/php.ini [Zend] zend_extension="/usr/lib/php/20131226/ZendDebugger.so" zend_debugger.allow_hosts=, zend_debugger.expose_remotely=1 zend_debugger.connector_port=10137

Do configure debugger in eclipse>Window>PHP>Servers>Localhost>Edit:

local server configure

debugger settings for server

global debugger settings

Error occurred: click on test button in debugger settings

Error occurred: return to global debugger settings

Try to debug: click on debug as>php web application

What I`m doing wrong? Reading a lot of pages, all give similar instructions as above. Please help.

Also posting phpinfo() screenshot, all seems fine there: - zend debugger settings - zend modules

UPDATE: I found a solution, for thus who interested read the post bellow. Site does`t accept it as answer yet.


Zend Debugger installed from separate bundle not working with PHP5.6. Problem in Zend opcache module. Seems they loaded in incorrect order.

Disabling zend opcache makes the solutions. Debugger work fine. But it possible to make work both this way:

Comment out it in config: (cli version seems to be symlink as also disabled)

lenya@JabbaDesktop:~$ sudo nano /etc/php/5.6/apache2/conf.d/10-opcache.ini

; configuration for php opcache module
; priority=10
; zend_extension=opcache.so

At bottom of /etc/php/5.6/apache2/php.ini:


First two lines(.so) should be exactly in this order. Installing debugger "how to" easy to find in google. No one mention above problem.
