I have tried to setup Xdebug along with easyDebug plugin for firefox.

The phase of setting a breakpoint both in Netbeans or Komodo, is going well, and the execution is stopped. But I'm not able to see the type of the variables, and their values.

I can see the superglobals, but all me local variables are marked as: 'uninitialized'

Does anyone have experience with this error?

Here is how it look:

Found a workaround!

Just to spare anyone elses time, I wanna share this information. After 10 hours of frustration I found a clue in this article: http://community.activestate.com/forum/zend-debugger

Apparently xdebug 2.0.5 -> 2.1.2 have a issue working with php5.3

Im working on a MAMP-stack, so in the httpd.conf, I change the load to php5.2 module instead of the php5.3.

Now debugging in komodo and netbeans are showen the beautiful nested arrays, as it should.

If anyone read this thread and have xdebug working with php5.3, feel very free to share your local setup configuration.

A picture of the beautiful variables:)
