I could not get the Xdebug to trigger Komodo IDE per video Drupal 7
Development Core Concepts. Under section 4, video 18, How hooks are invoked
with module_invoke_all()

I have Xdebug on with the little red stop turn on in Firefox running on MAC mountain lion, on the Komodo
IDE side, I have the trails.module open with line 24 click with the red
hexagon turn on. When I refresh the page localdrupal/admin/modules in
Firefox, with conditions above, Komodo IDE does not jump out as described
between 4:13 to 4:23.

Any Help is appreciated. Really like to learn how these tools work.

What version of Komodo?

Which version of Komodo are you using? There is a recent version (though not the most current) that has a bug in this area. I had to apply a patch!

That's the first thing I would check.

It said version 7.1. I did

It said version 7.1. I did check for updates, but no update was available.

Not sure where to start troubleshoot.

Let's dig a little deeper.

I'm using Linux so things may be in slightly different places for you.

Firstly, do you have Xdebug installed in PHP? You should have these lines in /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini


You will notice that the first line has "/path/to/xdebug.so". You will need to replace this with the correct path. Do you have the correct version of xdebug.so? If not you can get this from here. Download the PHP Remote Debugging Client Max OSX Universal. This is a tarball which, when unpacked will give you various xdebug.so files. It's probably 5.3 you want but, if you run

php -v

from a shell it will confirm this.

Copy the file in question to somewhere sensible then amend the /path/to/xdebug.so to reflect where you have just put it.

You may have to restart apache - I'm not sure.

In Komodo, go to edit/preferences/debugger/connection and set the port to 9000.

In Komodo, go to edit/preferences/languages/php and you should see a nice green tick saying "successfully configured for php debugging"

Then, it should work.

Hope it works out for you.
