## zend debugger stopped working – apache errorlog [Zend Debugger] Debugger compile handler overriden

when trying to use the zend debugger today it just would not work …

looking into “window > preferences > debug > installed debugger” it showed me that i have xdebug and zend debugger installed …

a page suggested to remove xdebug … but when running phpinfo() it did not show anything about xdebug .. so that could not be the problem …

another page suggested to look into the error.log from apache where i read:

`[Zend Debugger] Debugger compile handler overriden, will not be active in this request`

when searching for this i found another page pointed me into the right direction .. (this one: http://www.phil-taylor.com/2006/04/05/debugger-compile-handler-overriden-cannot-continue/)

phil mentions that the problem is with running both zend debugger and the ioncube loader .. made me remember that i did install the ioncube loader last week …

his suggestion to remove the following line from php.ini did not work for me …

`zend_debugger.expose_remotely=allowed_hosts`

therefore i removed the zend loader … will set it up again when needed …

thanks phil!
