Question: 

My Komodo breakpoints do not work. Why is that?

Answer: 

There are a few common reasons why breakpoints may not work when debugging inside of Komodo:

  • symbolic links - ensure that the file is not a symlinked location, as this can cause the breakpoints to be ignored - you must set the breakpoint in the real filepath
  • mapped URIs - sometimes an incorrect mapped URI can cause the breakpoint location to be changed - thus never matching the executed lines - try removing any mapped URIs in Komodo's preferences.

I have version 5.2 and cannot get the PHP debug session to work correctly for local debugging. Config says everything is OK and I have no mapped URI's or symlinks, yet the debugger totally ignores the breakpoints I set. I've read through the docs several times and don't understand what the problem might be. Is this an issue with the port it's listening on? I'm running on a localhost with IIS 7.0/FastCGI, Firefox and PHP 5.3.0 with Windows Vista. I'm new to Komodo but not to development and can say I've never had so much trouble setting up a debugging session. Any answers would be appreciated!
