Compiling Xdebug for PHP

While I’m not sticking to Arch Linux’s PHP (it’s version 7 by default a long time) so I had to compile Xdebug for my PHP version. Great thing at xdebug’s site is that they provide a wizard which parses the pasted php.ini and outputs an install instruction list 🙂

For me the following worked like charm:

  1. Download xdebug-2.4.0.tgz
  2. Unpack the downloaded file with tar -xvzf xdebug-2.4.0.tgz
  3. Run: cd xdebug-2.4.0
  4. Run: phpize (See the FAQ if you don’t have phpize).As part of its output it should show:
    Configuring for:
    PHP Api Version:         20131106
    Zend Module Api No:      20131226
    Zend Extension Api No:   220131226
    

    If it does not, you are using the wrong phpize. Please follow
    this FAQ entry and skip the next step.

  5. Run: ./configure
  6. Run: make
  7. Run: cp modules/xdebug.so /usr/lib/php/modules
  8. Edit /etc/php/php.ini and add the line
    zend_extension = /usr/lib/php/modules/xdebug.so
  9. sudo systemctl restart httpd.service

Oh yeah
Xdebug 2.4
