Xdebug and No Profiling Output

Posted by: admin November 29, 2017 Leave a comment

Questions:

This is a similar problem to XDebug profiling in PHP – can't get output but mine is on windows and I have the full path specified (which solved his problem)

I am not getting any output even though I have enabled the profiler. Below is a copy of xdebug setup (I have indented all the options that have been uncommented.) – Please note that xdebug is working fine as Ii have been getting the standard xdebug errors. If it make any difference I am using xampp, cakephp, php 5.3

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answers:

I think it’s to do with the “xdebug.profiler_output_name” setting

I copied your config, but changed the value of “xdebug.profiler_output_name” like below

xdebug.profiler_output_name = "cachegrind.out.%t-%s"

And it worked OK, but with your existing value of “xdebug.profiler_output_name” it didn’t

I think it’s to do with it not allowing colons in the output file name

Hope this helps/solves your problem!

Edit:
Just for reference, here are the full settings that work

[XDebug]
zend_extension = "C:\xampp\php\ext\php_xdebug.dll"
xdebug.profiler_append = 0
xdebug.profiler_enable = 1
xdebug.profiler_enable_trigger = 0
xdebug.profiler_output_dir = "C:\xampp\tmp"
xdebug.profiler_output_name = "cachegrind.out.%t-%s"
xdebug.remote_enable = 0
xdebug.remote_handler = "dbgp"
xdebug.remote_host = "127.0.0.1"
xdebug.trace_output_dir = "C:\xampp\tmp"

Edit 2:

Since the answer is getting a lot of hits, just thought I’d explain why. In the config file in the question, the output_name contains a : character, which is an allowed character in a filename on Linux, but not Windows.
