I'm attempted to deep debug a large php program and research shows
that xdebug is what I need to watch/trap certain variable changes.
I'm using php 5.3.10 on a non-X ubuntu server without any IDE so how
can one access/control the xdebugger during program execution without
an x console?

Thanks

xdebug has decent support on it's mailing list, where you should be
asking. See www.xdebug.org/support.php.

When dealing with a package, your should always look at the support
structure for that package. The authors know the product better than
anyone else.

Xdebug does not require XFree86/.org; it is (presumably) the "(PHP)
DEBUGging eXtension”, not the “X debugger”. I suggest you get yourself a
real name and debug your server-side PHP code remotely on a machine that
runs an X client (so that you can use a graphical IDE there). I am using
Eclipse PDT for the latter.

I do it all the time with my text mode development VMs. Your web server will connect
to your (xdebug enabled) IDE, so the requirement is that your desktop can be reached
at this address.

Thanks all who responded. I did visit the xdebug forum and actually
installed xdebug on my server and installed netbeans on my windoze
desktop and got it working. But now I've got to learn how to use
netbeans. Heavy sigh.

Thanks again.

You could try (if you are on another Linux box)
on system where you work
xhost +
On the system to debug
export DISPLAY=yourMachineWhereYouWork
start the debuger ...??!
display ( and mouse,keyboard.. should be on the system where you work..

Not required for xdebug - it does NOT use an x console. Answers like
this are why I recommend people get answers from the source.
