What would you like to do?
Install xdebug 2.2.0 for AMPPS on OSX
Grab the 'PHP Remote Debugging Client' (the pre-complied xdebug binary for OSX) from here:
Unzip it, find the folder that corresponds to the version of PHP you want to install it for and copy the file from there into your php extensions folder in the relevant PHP version directory. E.g. for PHP 5.4:
Now open PHP.ini in a text editor:
And add this line towards the bottom of the file, just above the dynamic extensions section:
zend_extension = /Applications/AMPPS/php-5.4/lib/extensions/ext/
Restart Apache, and you're done.

Just an update, xdebug is already included with AMPPS now but php.ini doesn't have the lines to use it by default.

Just add these lines above the Dynamic Extensions section
