How to Configure Xdebug in Mac with XAMPP

 To install with single command:

pecl install xdebug

Or Follow the instructions below:

Installation Wizard


  • Xdebug installed: no
  • Server API: Apache 2.0 Handler
  • Windows: no
  • Zend Server: no
  • PHP Version: 8.2.4
  • Zend API nr: 420220829
  • PHP API nr: 20220829
  • Debug Build: no
  • Thread Safe Build: no
  • OPcache Loaded: no
  • Configuration File Path: /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/etc
  • Configuration File: /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/etc/php.ini
  • Extensions directory: /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20220829



  1. Download xdebug-3.2.2.tgz
  2. Install the pre-requisites for compiling PHP extensions.
    On your Mac, we only support installations with 'homebrew', and brew install php && brew install autoconf should pull in the right packages.
  3. Unpack the downloaded file with tar -xvzf xdebug-3.2.2.tgz
  4. Run: cd xdebug-3.2.2
  5. Run: phpize (See the FAQ if you don't have phpize).

    As part of its output it should show:

    Configuring for:
    Zend Module Api No:      20220829
    Zend Extension Api No:   420220829

    If it does not, you are using the wrong phpize. Please follow this FAQ entry and skip the next step.

  6. Run: ./configure
  7. Run: make
  8. Run: cp modules/ /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20220829
  9. Update /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/etc/php.ini and add the line:
    zend_extension = xdebug
  10. Restart the Apache Webserver

Enabling Features

Now Xdebug is installed, you can enable its features. Please refer to the dedicated sections in the documentation about information on how to enable and configure these Xdebug features. Where these sections refer to php.ini or similar, please remember to use /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/etc/php.ini:

  • Development Helpers — help you get better error messages and obtain better information from PHP's built-in functions.
  • Step Debugging — allows you to interactively walk through your code to debug control flow and examine data structures.
  • Profiling — allows you to find bottlenecks in your script and visualize those with an external tool.
