Not sure if this is the right place for this -
This is an excellent page. Probably the best I've yet used on this site. Detailed and clear.
As it brings in a lot of different applications, its hard to know where to go for support on particular issues - a table or some such with the relevant support forums or channels would help a lot.
My particular problem - Everything works fine and tests fine but when I go to use xDebug in Eclipse as described, the 'break at first line' or explicit setting of breakpoints are ignored. The session terminates and the page appears as if they were not there.
There is probably some 'obvious' global setting I've missed but I can't find any solution through google although I have found a few threads by people with the same problem (and no solution).
Please Post a Question to Joomla! Coding 101 Forum
Hi. Why don't you post your question to the Joomla! Coding 101 Forum. I'll try to look for it, and there are probably people there who know way more about this than I do. Thanks. Mark Dexter 18:57, 25 August 2008 (EDT)
About not deleting the "Installation" folder
The tutorial says "you don't have to or don't want to delete the "installation" folder" and then goes on and says that if you run "administrator/index.php" you will see the admin login page. but this doesn't happen since the installation folder hasn't been deleted. what is shown is the warning to delete the folder.
Hi. That's interesting. On my system, when I run through Eclipse, it works fine without deleting the installation folder. That's why I put that information in there. Honestly, I don't understand why you don't get the warning the way you normally do. Are you running from inside Eclipse or just from the browser? In any case, you might want to post this question in the Joomla Development Forum, since those people know a lot more about this than I do. Mark Dexter 10:58, 7 September 2008 (EDT)
would be really nice to know how to fix the current conflict with zend and xdebug. PHP Fatal error: [Zend Optimizer] Zend Optimizer 3.3.3 is incompatible with Xdebug 2.0.3 in Unknown on line 0 which causes apache to promptly shutdown. I don't know which to turn off, zend or xdebug --N6REJ 13:56, 23 December 2008 (UTC) Troy
the php_xdebug should be commented out
I found the line zend_extension_ts="C:\xampp\php\ext\php_xdebug.dll" has to be commented out on Windows otherwise Apache crashes.
This is referenced in a few forums that discuss apache crashing with XAMPP.
However the very next section shows the example on Linux, can anyone test that this needs to be removed completely?
I only have XP. I'm trying to find out what the zend_extension_ts="C:\xampp\php\ext\php_xdebug.dll" is for.
