Summary0002003: Breakpoints and step-by-step debugging in VS Code not working
DescriptionI have Open Server x64 with PHP8 -TS. I installed Xdebug v3, but it doesn't work adequately in VS Code, just ignoring breakpoints or - even better - swearing about missing mysqli module when debugging step by step. Apparently Xdebug is up and running because I see formatted error output in the browser when developer mode is enabled AND when xdebug_break () is added in code, but even so there are bugs in the work.
I also tried XAMPP on a completely clean system, but the result was exactly the same.
Switching to older versions of PHP and Xdebug (2.x .x) did not work.
Steps To Reproduce1) Install Open Server 5.3.8 PHP8-TS x64 or XAMPP PHP8-TS x64.
3) Install Xdebug 3.4 x64 TS
2) Install VS Code 1.58.2
3) Install VSC extension PHP Debug v1.17.0
4) Automatic generate launch.json
5) Strart debug(?)

After spending all day, I came to a partial solution to the problem:
• Add xdebug_break () to the beginning of the script, after which you can debug step by step in the Listen for Xdebug mode, but you need to switch to the browser and press F5 each time;
• Work on the built-in administrator account and open the virtual disk partition in the IDE every time - otherwise the function above will stop working, and plus it will generate write errors due to the alleged absence of a file. Both Open Server and XAMPP hide the virtual disk for other users, even if they are administrators.
• Either disable the creation of a virtual hard disk to prevent its creation.

At the same time, debugging Launch currently open script is still not available.

Debugging with Xdebug and VS Code most definitely works. There is likely be something in your set up that is wrong. As this is not a support forum, I'd kindly point you to the support options that are available:
