 Alias Permission Problems
For an Alias I also had to add a Directory tag to the httpd.conf, otherwise I had permission problems accessing the files... <br /> [code] Alias /wiki "C:/Documents and Settings/Me/wiki"<br /> <Directory "C:/Documents and Settings/Me/wiki"><br /> Options Indexes MultiViews<br /> AllowOverride None<br /> Order allow,deny<br /> Allow from all<br /> </Directory><br /> [/code]<br /> Oh and all these editing tags seem broken!!

 Getting the correct php_dbg.dll
I want a debugger. I downloaded the latest XAMPP 1.5.4a and noticed that it comes with PHP 5.1.6 & PHP 4.4.4, and neither are supported. The debugger module only supports a subset of these major versions from 5.1.0 to 5.1.2 and 4.4.0 to 4.4.2 (http://dd.cron.ru/dbg/downloads.php). I think right at the beginning you should specify which versions to download to get a debugger Version "XAMPP 1.5.2" would be fine.

 Re: xo-002 ch02s03.html Workspace Method 2
I do not agree with the suggested method 2: Quote:
For example you have set up XAMPP and your “document root” path is the XAMPP default:
C:Program Filesapachefriendsxampphtdocs
Quote:
,then your appropriate workspace path should be one level less:
C:Program Filesapachefriendsxampp
If htdocs is your document root, then each folder inside IS a new project and you should set workspace directory as Document Root directory. With suggested method, all your web projects are managed with ONE big PHPeclipse project.

 Re: xo-002 ch01.html
Trying this out on a Mac. J2SE 1.5.0_07-164 installed. 1.5.0_06 is what's available on the download site. However, it would almost certainly be updated with Software Update.

Second question: How do we point the XAMPP start/stop buttons in the Eclipse toobar to where we put XAMPP?

 Debugging standalone PHP applications
Thanks hundred times for all the detailed explanations here !!

And especially for the note which explains why debugging a CLI application does not work in 1.1.8 version and only in 1.1.9. (wrong port, as I guessed, but I have been looking for this information for some hours before coming here). Unfortunately this 1.1.9 CVS version does not work in the last 3.2.0 Eclipse version I just got. Let us hope the stable version is going quickly.

 Re: dbg is not working
I want using eclipse3.2 with php-plugin and for debugging i want using dbg.
I'm using xampp 1.6.3a with php 4.4.7. and php_dbg.dll-4.4.x
After step by step installation
http://docs.schuetzengau-freising.de/ ... =xo-002&file=ch01s05.html
the debugger dbg will not work.
When i called phpinfo() there is no section dbg shown.
Who have any ideas?
Thanks a lot!
Regards Mercyful

 Re: xo-002 ch04.html
A section about verrors should be nice. I get the following:


<terminated, exit value: 0>PHP C:\Program\PHP\php.exe : <path>/<fil>.php

I've googled like crazy but to no avail. And yes - it does not stop at breakpoints and "variables" are empty. DBG is working:

if (function_exists ("DebugBreak")) {
DebugBreak ();
echo "debugging started!<br />\n";
}

Outputs "debugging started!" And DBG is reported on phpinfo().

 Re: xo-002 ch01s03.html
Hi,

Seems that the mentioned link for cvs:

http://phpeclipse.sourceforge.net/update/cvs

is out of date or wrong.

 Re: xo-002 index.html
I've been searching for a PHP debugger for ages. This is the only one I can find that works perfectly, thanks very much for providing this documentation.<br /><br />I doubt if I could ever get it to work on Windows, but it works so well with Ubuntu Linux and Eclipse 3.1.<br />
