Summary0000802: Problems installing "Debugclient"
DescriptionHi to all

I'm doing the thesis for university on Code coverage using Xdebug and I have problems with debugclient.

I'm trying to install debug client on my ubuntu 10.04 but I have some problems...
I'm using ZendServer and I've already stopped ZendOptimizer and ZendDebugger as written on the docs.

I didn't have problem configuring Xdebug, but when I tried to install debug client at the moment of make install it return this:

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/ivanghisleni/Downloads/xdebug-2.1.3/debugclient'
test -z "/usr/local/bin" || /bin/mkdir -p "/usr/local/bin"
  /usr/bin/install -c debugclient '/usr/local/bin'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `install-data-am'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/ivanghisleni/Downloads/xdebug-2.1.3/debugclient'

and when i try to execute the first example the var_dump() doesn't work as the docs say..... it show this:

array(4) { ["one"]=> string(23) "a somewhat long string!" ["two"]=> array(1) { [""]=> array(2) { [""]=> int(210) [""]=> array(2) { [""]=> float(3.141592564) [""]=> float(2.7) } } } ["three"]=> object(test)#1 (3) { ["pub"]=> *RECURSION* ["priv":"test":private]=> bool(true) ["prot":protected]=> int(42) } ["four"]=> array(6) { [0]=> int(0) [1]=> int(1) [2]=> int(2) [3]=> int(3) [4]=> int(4) [5]=> int(5) } }

The debug client is only for testing the remote debugging. It is not what you want to install if you want to get Xdebug going. Please follow the instructions at or to get Xdebug installed.

If I understand what you're saying, I only need that Xdebug is installed and I don't need debug client for working locally?

Correct, you need need debugclient. Just Xdebug and your IDE is enough.
