Setup Xdebug

Pre-condition : Ubuntu user, Lamp environment, vim installed

The first step is to install xdebug by using command :

sudo apt-get install php5-xdebug

Next you need to edit the php.ini file to ensure that the xdebug is being seen by the Php engine, simply edit it right in the command line using vim

sudo vim /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini

At the bottom of the file please add

#Added for xdebug

Now restart the Apache by command :

sudo service apache2 restart

or if it doesnt work use :

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Next, check by creating a php file which contains <?php phpinfo(); ?> and launch it by localhost, if it shows up as below we are done setting up xdebug
