Did you pass in output from the command line php's phpinfo(), or from a phpinfo() output through a web request?

I experienced a similar problem which was resolved by changing
zend_extension = C:\php_5_6_23\ext\php_xdebug-2.5.0rc1-5.6-vc11.dll
zend_extension = php_xdebug-2.5.0rc1-5.6-vc11.dll

extension_dir was set to the extension directory in my ini file which may explain why the full path caused a problem.

This might indicate that the advice given by the wizard is incorrect in these circumstances. (PHP 7.0.13 in my case)

Hi derick,

I changed
zend_extension_debug = C:\php_5_6_23\ext\php_xdebug-2.5.0rc1-5.6-vc11.dll

zend_extension = C:\php_5_6_23\ext\php_xdebug-2.5.0rc1-5.6-vc11.dll

And its showing in phpinfo(), that xdebug is installed .

But when I start debug in netbeans its continuesly showing
"waiting for connection (netbeans-xdebug)"... And I am not able to debug.
PLease help..

Refer to
There may be a better answer but my solution was to revert to version 2.4.1.
You will also experience this problem if your configuration is incorrect but that would not be a bug.

Then, unless you have any evidence of a bug, I would be pretty confident you have a configuration issue, in which case there is plenty of information on line to help you resolve this. E.g Google is your friend.

I am pretty sure this is a configuration issue too. Please write to the support mailinglist to get this sorted. (see
