Just recently did I get around to trying Zend's Development Environment
(ZDE) from the CD distributed at the NYTCHP. So far it looks like a
I was especially interested in learning about the integrated debugger,
but ran into some problems with it.
Some background information:
I chose to install ZDE with PHP5 support on Windows XP.
ZDE bundles a PHP 5 CGI binary stored in C:\Program Files\Zend\bin\php5
The integrated debugger uses this binary to parse and execute scripts,
and to show their output
I was using the 'local debugger', not the 'server debugger'.
You can debug a file with the following contents to see which extensions
the Zend PHP binary supports: <?php phpinfo(); ?>
The output of that file lists a whole bunch of extensions, but I could
not find them anywhere in the C:\Program Files\Zend\ directory! (There
was no 'ext' subdirectory' and there were no .dll files)
The php.ini file is also stored in the same location
The php.ini file contains only three lines:
I then tried to debug a file with a call to mysql_connect() but that
resulted in the output of 'undefined function', so I am now trying to
find out how I can make Zend's PHP binary support it.
It is probably compiled without MySQL support, but would swapping in
another PHP CGI binary help? I was thinking it would not, because this
seems to be a custom-built PHP binary.
Any thoughts on this?
