I'm running XAMPP 1.7.3a on Ubuntu 9.10. With Netbeans 6.7.1 as my editor, I want to be able to debug my PHP sites.
To do this, I looked up Xdebug and started following the installation instructions, found here: http://xdebug.org/docs/install.
Trying to compile the .tgz file, run in to a problem.
Step 3) I can execute that, but what use does it have? I don't get the output or what I should do with it.
Step 4) I execute the following command:
./configure --enable-xdebug --with-php-config=/opt/lampp/etc/
At the bottom of the output, it says: configure:
error: Cannot find php-config. Please
I've checked the location I entered, the php.ini file is there and so are all other config files.
So, I'm not sure what to do now. Should I ignore and just do the 'make' command, or does something else yet need to be done?
you have to pass the path to the php config binary - should be something like
