Summary0000876: Tailored instructions do not say to update /etc/php5/apache/php.ini

Tailored instructions do not say to update /etc/php5/apache/php.ini.

Step 8 is:

Update /etc/php5/cli/php.ini and change the line
zend_extension = /usr/lib64/php5/extensions/

Now - it's obviously trivial to add the extension to the /etc/php5/apache/php.ini file - but when you're just copying the instructions you may not notice you've done this.

It's traceable - but not immediately obvious that this is needed as the output of 'php -m' shows the module as available - but then the main xdebug section is missing from phpinfo() output.

If there is a reason to keep xdebug for the cli only initially at least there should be a note in the tailored instructions to update /etc/php5/apache/php.ini if xdebug is needed in a browser.

TagsNo tags attached.

When passing in the phpinfo() output from the command line, there is no way for me to guess or detect additional .ini files that also might need updating.
