MAMP and Zend Xdebug

Categories: Development

This is more of a simple note to self. But after setting up a fresh computer, all of those fuzzy little bits about getting MAMMP to work perfectly slip my mind.

The one thing that can be a little confusing with MAMP is the multiple config locations.


For example, I am running PHP 7.1.8 and generally, I update both config files to prevent any confusion.


The fastest way to test this is to use var_dump(), you should see a much nicer output.

The other way to confirm its working is to look at you phpinfo() and search for Xdebug.
