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!
Debugging with PhpStorm locally
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 https://xdebug.org/wizard.php zend_extension="c:\xampp-php7\php\ext\php_xdebug-2.4.0-7.0-vc14.dll" ; 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 https://tracy.nette.org/ instead xdebug.default_enable = "Off" ; makes sure that the process does not freeze when there is no debug client xdebug.remote_autostart = 0
