PhpStorm 2016.3 Help

Starting the Debugger Session

On this page:

Before debugging

The debug session starts with the selected run/debug configuration. Note that several debug processes can be launched simultaneously.

Debugging an application

To start debugging an application, do one of the following

  • Select the run/debug configuration to execute, and then do one of the following:
    • Click /help/img/idea/2016.3/run.png icon in the left gutter, and then choose /help/img/idea/2016.3/debug.png.
    • Click /help/img/idea/2016.3/debug.png on the toolbar.
    • Choose Run | Debug on the main menu.
    • Press Shift+F9.
  • Press Shift+Alt+F9, select the configuration from the pop-up menu, and press Enter.

Note that after you've launched a debug session, the /help/img/idea/2016.3/debug.png icon that marks the Debug Tool Window toggles to /help/img/idea/2016.3/active_debug_icon.png to indicate that the debugging process is active.
