Joshua Thijssen:
Debugging remote CLI with phpstorm
December 24, 2012 @ 10:11:00

Joshua Thijssen has a recent post for all the PHPStorm users out there (or maybe investigating a new IDE) and are looking for a way to debug your PHP apps easily with XDebug. Well, he's come up with a step-by-step guide to help you get it all set up and working, complete with screenshots. He helps you debug command-line applications, but the setup will work for your web apps too.

Even in these days, with full-featured PHP IDEs around, I still see PHP developers using var_dump() and die() to debug their code. Not only is this a very bad way of "debugging", it has other dangers as well [...]. We've probably all been there,.. But we don't have to. Debugging your code properly through an IDE is quite easy, but one of the major problems is debugging CLI code. Since many frameworks like Zend, Symfony and micro-frameworks like Cilex can be used to create command-line apps, cronjobs and even "deamons", so how do we easily debug this kind of code?

He starts with the setup of a development instance (he recommends a clone-able virtual machine environment) and shows how o configure both XDebug and PHPStorm to work together happily. He shows what configuration options and steps you'll need to take to be able to debug the CLI apps too, including a command-line option to specify the IP to report the debugging into back into.

Getting started with OpenAds (installing)
August 23, 2007 @ 11:53:00

On the PaymentBlogger.com site today, there's a quick tutorial on getting the OpenAds advertising management system installed and working.

With Nicks great post on selling links I thought I would follow up with a quick how to setup OpenAds and how to integrate it into your Wordpress or Drupal sites.

He steps through the process of setting up OpenAds with a series of screenshots of the interface and descriptions on what needs to be done. The actual install is only about a five step process. They also include links to WordPress and Drupal components to make integration.

BillS' IIS Blog:
How to install PHP on IIS7 (RC1)
September 22, 2006 @ 07:19:32

As Christian Wenz points out, there's some information in this blog entry about getting PHP up and running on IIS7 (RC1) for Windows.

Thanks to some small tweaks we made in RC1, it is now easier than EVER to get PHP working on IIS.

The method basically involves grabbing the latest PHP and installing it (including the php.ini file) and installing IIS7 with the ISAPI Extension component or CGI component. Then it's just a matter of setting up the right handler mapping. He provides screenshots of the process to help show you exactly where to go.
