Best Joomla Debug Environment

Post by exrace » Sat Jul 26, 2008 1:40 pm

Excuse me if this is posted some place already but this would make a great sticky.
What is the best debug environment to use with Joomla 1.5 development?
What does our Joomla hero's use? :)

What would be great if anyone knows of a tutorial on how to setup this in a Unix based apache environment.
Of course it needs to be an open source solution but if a commercial solution is available that is reasonably priced that would be of interest too.

Hi. Did you look at the link in the "Welcome - Please Read"? It has a link to a page that has instructions for setting up XAMPP and Eclipse on Ubuntu. Here is the link: http://dev.joomla.org/component/option, ... linux-ide/

I tried to follow the instructions for Windows and it turns out that these instructions are out of date and for an older Eclipse version. The current Eclipse with PHP (called PDT in Eclipse) comes with XDebug already installed. So you don't want to do the step where it tells you to install the XDebug plugin for Eclipse.

Hope this helps. Mark
