Trying to get xdebug to talk to netbeans (and vice versa).

xdebug is in a virtualbox setup with vagrant (and some basic puppet to setup a basic LAMP). According to the php.ini from the VM everything is setup as I indented.


Unfortunately netbeans debugger just doesn't seem to be able to talk with xdebug.

  1. check wheather xdb is installed on vm using phpinfo()
  2. Xdebug.remote_host should be vm ip address

Once everything is fine, You can use "Xdebug helper" chrome extention or "easy xdebug" firefox extention to open page in debug mode
