Documentation about using Xdebug.

In short, you have to copy php_xdebug*.dll file into your php's extensions dir and add following lines into your php.ini:
zend_extension_ts=php_xdebug.dll;
xdebug.remote_enable=On;
xdebug.remote_host="localhost;"
xdebug.remote_port=9000;
xdebug.remote_handler="dbgp";

Restart your Apache server... and you can start using the addon!

Inspired by Xdebug helper from Denis Orlikhin
