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!

meaning that the packages libmysqlclient15off and libkrb53 where missing …
finding the solutions on the web (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1459359 and http://forums.zend.com/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=4062#p14253) i had to do the following to make zend server ce install:

get the specific package and install libmysqlclient15off manually

wget http://nl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/m/mysql-dfsg-5.0/libmysqlclient15off_5.1.30really5.0.83-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i libmysqlclient15off_5.1.30really5.0.83-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb

install equivs for later usage

sudo aptitude install equivs

create a file named libkrb53_fake.txt and enter the following in the txt-file

Package: libkrb53
Version: 1.6.dfsg.2+fake1
Depends: libkrb5-3, libgssapi-krb5-2, libk5crypto3, libkrb5support0

then build the package with equivs and install it

sudo equivs-build libkrb53_fake.txt
sudo dpkg -i libkrb53_1.6.dfsg.2+fake1_all.deb

after that the zend server could be installed successfully

sudo aptitude install zend-c
