Configuring and using Xdebug locally in PhpStorm

Pedro Sanchez wrote a good guide on how to get started with Xdebug in PhpStorm.

We assume that you use PHPStorm on a daily basis, and this guide will help to debug your code locally using the IDE. A remote debugging guide will come in the future.

After hours he writes about modern PHP and Laravel on this blog. When not coding he’s probably rehearsing with his kraut rock band. He loves waffles and butterflies.
