I dare asking a newbie question, please do not beat me up for it. I am trying to get a grip of phpBB development, at least some basic stuff. I'd like to debug some extensions, improve and contribute where I can. I know a little PHP, have some experience with NetBeans and xdebug, not much, but it was good enough to understand some Joomla! and Typo3 a while back.
Now, with phpBB I feel lost. Hope someone out there can give me a helpful hint.
The debugger is running, there seems to be some interaction with NetBeans. But I do not seem to end up in the correct files. I am sure I have set the paths correctly. Now I see the requested URLs look like
acp_main.php looks exactly like the file I am supposed to see, but Netbeans steps through index.php. I tried setting breakpoints for the code-lines I am interested in, nothing happens. What can I do to get this right? Is there a tutorial on how to set up your development environment for beginners maybe?
