I am getting errors when trying to do this. What is the correct way to install Xdebug. From Pear? Pecl?

I'm not a user of xDebug, but a related post on refers to an article where the guy got the xDebug binaries from ActiveState. Hope this helps.

I did this a while back and the trick was to make sure that Xdebug was compiled as a 64-bit extension by using the command CFLAGS='-arch x86_64' before I compiled it from the source (as per the documentation).
