The PHP Debugger

The Enterprise Architect PHP Debugger enables you to debug PHP.exe scripts. This section discusses basic setup and the various debugging scenarios that are commonly encountered; the scenarios concern themselves with the mapping of file paths, which is critical to the success of a remote debugging session.

Script Setup

An Analyzer Script is a basic requirement for debugging in Enterprise Architect; you create a script using the toolbar of the Execution Analyzer.

Select PHP.XDebug as the debugging platform; when you select this platform the property page displays these connection settings:

  • host - localhost - The adaptor that Enterprise Architect listens on for incoming connections from PHP.
  • localpath - %LOCAL% - Specifies the local file path to be mapped to a remote file path. This is a remote debugging setting; for local debugging, clear the value. The value is a placeholder; you should edit it to fit your particular scenario.
  • remotepath - %REMOTE% - Specifies the remote file path that a local file path is to be mapped to. This is a remote debugging setting; for local debugging, clear the value. The value is a placeholder; you should edit it to fit your particular scenario.

Local Machine Apache Server

In this situation, consider this configuration:

  • O/S: Windows7
  • Network computer name: MyPC
  • Network share MyShare mapped to c:\myshare
  • Source files in Enterprise Architect have been imported from c:\myshare\apache\myapp\scripts
  • Apache document root is set to //MyPC/MyShare/apache

In this scenario an Analyzer Script for the connection parameters might be configured as:

  • host: localhost
  • port: 9000
  • localpath: c:\myshare\apache\
  • remotepath: MyPC/MyShare/apache/

Local Machine PHP.EXE

In this scenario an Analyzer Script for the connection parameters might be configured as shown, as file paths always map to same physical path:

  • host: localhost
  • port: 9000
  • localpath:
  • remotepath:

Remote Linux Machine Apache Server

In this situation consider this configuration:

  • Local Machine
  • O/S: Windows7
  • Source files in  Enterprise Architect have been imported from c:\myshare\apache\myapp\scripts
  • Remote Machine
  • O/S: Linux
  • Apache document root is set to home/apache/htdocs
  • Source files in Apache are located at home/apache/htdocs/myapp/scripts

In this scenario an Analyzer Script for the connection parameters might be configured as:

  • host: localhost
  • port: 9000
  • localpath: c:\myshare\apache\
  • remotepath: home/apache/htdocs/

Remote Linux Machine PHP.exe

In this situation consider this configuration:

  • Local Machine
  • O/S: Windows7
  • Source files in Enterprise Architect have been imported from c:\myshare\apache\myapp\scripts
  • Remote Machine
  • O/S: Linux
  • Source files in Apache located at home/myapp/scripts

In this scenario an Analyzer Script for the connection parameters might be configured as:

  • host: localhost
  • port: 9000
  • localpath: c:\myshare\apache\
  • remotepath: home/
