Can I get some help to flesh out my understanding of Local+Xdebug and PhpStorm?
Since PHPStorm isn’t my primary editor, I thought I was doing something wrong (and maybe I still am!) but I wanted to post my findings so that the Local community could help me get things figured out.
So basically, I couldn’t get the latest version of PHPStorm (2020.3.1) to work with the version of Xdebug in Local (currently version

After doing some research, I found this bug report that’s closed, but it seems like the issue is still present:
@jasontheadams – I see that you commented on the above
WI-56500 issue – Are you using the latest version of PHPStorm along with Xdebug + Local or are you doing something else?
As a follow-up, I can advocate for upgrading Xdebug to the 3.x line, though I don’t know how quickly we’ll be able to get that updated. Mostly I wanted to gauge what PHPStorm users are doing and if I’m missing an easy configuration step.
