Summary0002218: Since Mac upgraded to Sonoma 14.1.1 xdebug debug build can not be built

I have run xdebug via mamp for two years on my macbook pro m1, about two weeks ago my macbook upgraded the os to sonoma 14.1.1 since which time I have been unable to do any web development.

I reinstalled MAMP using Homebrew via Terminal

MAMP was placed in my applications folder /Applications/MAMP with PHP versions up to 8.2

PHP appears to be in
stoneym@MacBook-Pro ~ % php -v
PHP 8.3.0 (cli) (built: Nov 21 2023 14:40:35) (NTS)
Copyright (c) The PHP Group
Zend Engine v4.3.0, Copyright (c) Zend Technologies
with Xdebug v3.2.2, Copyright (c) 2002-2023, by Derick Rethans
with Zend OPcache v8.3.0, Copyright (c), by Zend Technologies
stoneym@MacBook-Pro ~ %

When I try to configure I get this error

configure: error: not supported. Need a PHP version >= 7.2.0 and < 8.2.0 (found 8.3.0)

I can run my developed website through localhost with the MAMP sever started but can not do any debugging.

Here's the installation wizard comments

  1. Xdebug for PHP 8.3 has not been released yet (which is what you're trying to compile against,
configure: error: not supported. Need a PHP version >= 7.2.0 and &lt; 8.2.0 (found 8.3.0)

If you're compiling on the command line, then you need to pass in php -i information, and not the output of a different PHP version's phpinfo() output.

  1. The wizard talks about PHP 7.4 — which is not the same version as PHP 8.3, and hence it's a different PHP install.

  2. PHP 7.4 is no longer supported (

There is nothing in this report that is actionable on my side, so I am closing this.
