Debugging with PhpStorm locally


Kind of a noob question. I'm uploading to a remote server. I've been advised to debug locally (versus remotely). How am I to pull up my files in a browser, then use the debugging tools in PhpStorm? As it stands, my remote host (in PhpStorm) is configured. I've done my own research but can't seem to find a clear answer. Thanks!

1 Answer: 

There is a "zero-configuration" debugging as described in docs. Also if in trouble try this xdebug settings:

; path to your php_xdebug extension file
; download from
; disables profiler globally 
xdebug.profiler_enable = 0
; allows enabling it selectively with request parameter "XDEBUG_PROFILE"
xdebug.profiler_enable_trigger = 1
; directory to output profiler files to
xdebug.profiler_output_dir = "C:\xampp-php7\tmp"
; profiler file name (with request uri and timestamp)
xdebug.profiler_output_name = "%R-%t.cgout"
; enables debugger
xdebug.remote_enable = 1
; selects the dbgp protocol
xdebug.remote_handler = "dbgp"
; host where debug client is running
xdebug.remote_host = "localhost"
; debugger port
xdebug.remote_port = 9000
; disables xdebug traces in error messages - use instead
xdebug.default_enable = "Off"
; makes sure that the process does not freeze when there is no debug client
xdebug.remote_autostart = 0

I created a gist for easier sharing
