Debugging not starting

UPDATE:

I've spent way too much time on this and have decided to ditch it and continue using the clunky NetBeans.

ORIGINAL QUESTION:

I'm having some difficulty getting xdebug to work with sublime text 2.

What I have done so far is install:

  1. LAMP,
  2. php5-xdebug
  3. python2.6
  4. sublime-text-2
  5. sublimexdebug

If I then use sublime to open a php file and press shift+f8, the xdebug menu pops up from which I can add/remove breakpoint and also start debugging.

Some php:

Menu drops down when I press shift+f8:

Debugging started:

In that image it says:

Xdebug: No URL defined in project settings file

Info.sublime-project contains:

{
    "folders":
    [
        {
            "path": "/var/www"
        }
    ],

    "settings": {
        "xdebug": { "url": "http://localhost" }
    }
}

As you can see from the 3rd screenshot, I have started debugging and nothing happens, no errors, no browser window opens, nothing. If I manually navigate to localhost/info.php, the page loads as normal. If I manually add ?XDEBUG_SESSION_START=sublime.xdebug to the end of the url so localhost/info.php?XDEBUG_SESSION_START=sublime.xdebug and hit refresh on the browser, the page loads as normal and debugging still doesn't start.

What am I doing wrong?

UPDATE: Some info about ports:

Some tips:

  1. Check that Xdebug is running checking the information generated by the phpinfo command.

  2. Enable remote debugging in the xdebug configuration (and verify again with the phpinfo command):

    xdebug.remote_enable=1

  3. I don't use the xdebug setting in Sublime Text. I think it is not necessary.

  4. Open the console in Sublime Text. Any problem is logged in the console. There are some problems in Ubuntu reported in the pulgin homepage.

  5. I use a browser extension to activate or deactivate the debugging. In Chrome look for "Xdebug Helper for Chrome". You need to configure the cookie name as "sublime.xdebug".


I use Easy xDebug for firefox to kick start the debug session and that works a charm. You need to use "sublime.xdebug" for the idekey.

I presume that you've got some break points in there? Your screenshots imply that you do but make sure that you use the shift+f8 menu to add them.


You have got a problem in your configuration, it is using the wrong syntax (according to Issue #13):

{
    "folders":
    [
        {
            "path": "/var/www"
        }
    ],

    "settings": { <<<==== problem here
        "xdebug": { "url": "http://localhost" }
    }
}

Instead it should be:

{
    "folders":
    [
        {
            "path": "/var/www"
        }
    ],

    "xdebug": 
    {
        "url": "http://localhost" 
    }        
}

This is probably also causing it not working.


I experienced the same issue and submitted bug report here:

https://github.com/Kindari/SublimeXdebug/issues/58

However, it may be socket related bug in XDebug itself:
