Windows + Xdebug + Sublime Text 3

Issue Summary

Sublime Text cannot connect to xDebug, while it works with almost 0 config in VS Code.

I have the Xdebug Client package installed in ST and configured it per project. With no host config Client returns an error:

Unable to start Xdebug debugging session.
Configured address ( is not accessible.

But changing setting it to "host": "localhost", makes it work or at least not giving any errors.

The problem is with breakpoints as it doesn’t pick them up. The path_mappings I tried:

"path_mapping": {
	# 1st attempt:
	"/app/public" : "C:\\Users\\MyName\\www\\website\\app\\public",
	# 2nd attempt:
	"/app/public" : "C:/Users/MyName/www/website/app/public",
	# 3rd attempt, because this is exactly what ABSPATH is set to:
	"/app/public" : "C:\\Users\\MyName\\www\\website\\app/public",

All the paths needs to be escaped in .sublime-project file and this is exactly have I have it with project folders config.

Can you share your config if you managed to get it working?

System Details

  • Local version: 5.9.8+5191
  • OS: Windows 10 Pro

I got it working!

Apparently the config I was missing was:

xdebug.remote_connect_back = 1

In site config php.ini.hbs
