Debugging PHP with GDB and php-debuginfo
Tue Jul 20 22:54:27 GMT 2021
I've installed the php-debuginfo extension for gdb, but I can't figure
out how to set a breakpoint with it. Is there a manual for
php-debuginfo? All I can find is the package information.
I'm trying to debug why a unit test is passing (it should fail). I'm
using the CakePHP framework (www.cakephp.org). From the command line, I
normally just execute `vendor/bin/phpunit`.
With gdb, I execute `gdb $(which php)`, then at the command line in GDB
I type ` b ./tests/TestCase/Controller/UsersControllerTest.php:80`
GDB responds with:
No source file named
Make breakpoint pending on future shared library load? (y or [n])
The file name is valid. I've tried using the full path instead of the
When I run the tests with `r vendor/bin/phpunit` the unit tests all
execute, but GDB doesn't stop at the breakpoint.
Do I need to modify php.ini to use gdb? Any pointers?
