Debugger

The PDT project does not contain server side implementation for PHP debugging and will welcome any open source or commercial implementation of the debug protocol.

PHP Executable Debugger

  • Install via update site: In the main menu, select Help | Install New Software..., add the site http://downloads.zend.com/pdt and follow the instructions.
  • Zend Executable Debugger - A free Eclipse plugin that adds PHP executable debug capabilities to the Eclipse environment.

PHP Web Server Debugger

Known Problems

  • If after installing PDT you do not see the PDT perspective, views/editors/file associations do not work, or your get "An error occurred" messages, try restarting Eclipse with the -clean flag.
  • You may find that your chosen mirror fails due to bug 203794. Until that bug is fixed, try another mirror, or try an FTP site instead of an HTTP site.
  • You may encounter problems on linux with non-existant cups servers in /etc/cups/client.conf (bug 242677). Try running with ./eclipse -Dorg.eclipse.swt.internal.gtk.disablePrinting.
  • You may encounter this error message: Problem occurred: 'Selection Job titile' has encountered a problem. If so, you need to install DLTK 1.0.I200807181303 (or newer). Unpack the zip into your dropins folder (see From Zips above). See also bug 242947.
  • Another variation reported to work: PDT 2.0.0 N20080823 + DLTK Core 0.95.0.v20080716 + DLTK RDS 0.95.0.v20080623
  • If updating from a nightly build to a newer nightly, you will need to uninstall and then reinstall PDT. See bug 241341.
