Summary0001564: Remote Debugging documentation: Sessions and XDEBUG_SESSION not clearly explained
Description discusses sessions and the value of XDEBUG_SESSION, but never explains clearly what a session is.

My understanding is that the value of XDEBUG_SESSION must match the number of an already existing session. It would presumably be best to add a session in the schemas of the "Communication Set-up" section.

One thing particularly useful to clarify would be whether several scripts can be debugged in a single session (visibly) and whether a session can be used by several scripts at the same time.
TagsNo tags attached.
Operating System
PHP Version7.2.0-7.2.4

Other questions to answer:
How are session numbers assigned?
Can 2 sessions run simultaneously? The answer to that is yes.

This has all changed for Xdebug 3. If there is still some unclearness, please file a new issue.
