Thanks! I wish I had a way of upvoting this! You should make a stackoverflow answer, and then I can upvote that!

Thank you :D

Hey Man, all I can say is. . .You ROCK! Thanks for this piece. I have never worked with a PHP IDE other than Dreamweaver. I needed an IDE and a tool I can use for debugging php code. I searched and found your tutorial. I opted for eclipse and I got the XDebug installed and configured according to your tutorial. Everything just went well without any errors. Once again, thanks a bunch!

Once I I launch php in the console, I get:
Failed loading c:\xampp\php\ext\php_xdebug-2.5.3-7.1-vc14-x86_64.dll

@gk2go this is because you have downloaded the incorrect binary, first use the to figure out which binary you need to download. Then make sure to include your binary within the specified folder and make sure it matches the name.

SoboLAN commented May 16, 2017

Worked very nice for me.

However I can't seem to understand why it's not included by default in XAMPP, just like for older versions.
