Summary0001703: Symbol not found: _compiler_globals
I had the xdebug up and running on my MAC OS High Sierra 10.13.6 until i installed PEAR and ran some brew update.
Now the xdebug does not work at all with my PHP Storm. If i do a php -i or run any drush command i get:
Failed loading /Applications/DevDesktop/php7_2_x64/ext/ dlopen(/Applications/DevDesktop/php7_2_x64/ext/, 9): Symbol not found: _compiler_globals

"Symbol not found: _compiler_globals" indicates that your PHP is build with a different thread-safey-ness as Xdebug. I don't understand why "brew update" should mess that up (you'll have to ask them!).

The output from the wizard indicates that it thinks that your PHP is compiled *with* thread safe mode enabled ("Thread Safe Build: yes"), but I probably think that you pasted the wrong PHP's output. It matters that use the same "php" command for which you want to install Xdebug for also creates the phpinfo() output (or "php -i") that you feed into the wizard. It is also possible that the wizard gets it wrong, as there is a possibility that you have multiple sets of PHP and its headers installed. The difference between the paths in "Configuration File Path: /Users/acquia/csbworkdir/mak/php7_2-osx/install/lib" and " Extensions directory: /Applications/DevDesktop/php7_2_x64/ext" hints at that.

As this is not a bug, I am closing this issue, and kindly refer you to StackOverflow for support:
