I've installed PHP 5.3.8 on my localhost and I tried to configure Xdebug, but for some reason, Xdebug doesn't seem to work. I've added following lines to my php.ini file:

zend_extension = C:\Server\PHP\5.3.8\ext\php_xdebug-2.1.3-5.3-vc9.dll

And of course, the file in the zend_extension path is exists. And I also have tried restarting my Apache.
Is there a specific type of Xdebug for every version of PHP or is this just a matter of a bad configuration?

I've tried every 2.1.3 and 2.1.2 dll available on the Xdebug site, but none of them seems to work...

EDIT 2: Ok, great, I just got the latest Xdebug version working, but my var_dump's still look awful... Here is what they look like:

array(3) { [0]=> string(4) "text" [1]=> string(4) "node" [2]=> string(6) "blabla" }

But they used to look like this:

    0 => 'text' string(4) 
    1 => 'node' string(4)
    2 => 'blabla' string(6)

How do I get them to look like this?

    Xdebug has a fantastic phpinfo() output parser which determines exactly what version of Xdebug you need and even gives you personalised instructions based on this. Simply visit:


    and you'll be up and running in no time.

    If your var_dump looks "awful" then you need to set html_errors=1. Xdebug respects PHP's normal error reporting settings and (sadly) in PHP 5.3 that default now has html_errors=0. Simply set it back to 1 in php.ini.

    Of course the xdebug version must be compatible with the php version. Yours look well (you can check it in the download page: enter link description here).

    Next, check the Zend Engine is running with xdebug. phpinfo() must return something like:

    This program makes use of the Zend Scripting Language Engine:
    Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2011 Zend Technologies
        with Xdebug v2.2.0-dev, Copyright (c) 2002-2011, by Derick Rethans

    If you don't see the line "with Xdebug..." the problem is on the dll. If you see that line, xdebug is running ok. Then the problem comes from the client side, maybe due to a configuration problem.
