Sprout Video

One of the great advantages of an IDE over a text editor is the ability to easily run a debugger. In this lesson you'll learn how to configure PhpStorm to use XDebug. We'll walk through getting XDebug set up, and then how to debug, including setting breakpoints.

Note: From the menu bar, PhpStorm > Preferences > PHP > Debug will apply settings to the current project as described in the video.
