For years I have been using Notepad++ and other text editors as my go to IDE for web development ... the issue is that it does not have any kind of debugging. Only way to debug is to upload it to my Wamp server and see if it works.

Why I am bringing this up now? I am working on a large project, and just spent almost 4 hours tracking down a bug caused by a singe misplaced character.

Is there a good (free) IDE for PHP 5 that has color coding, and has an active debug of some kind so that I can catch mistakes early ?

It's not free, but PhpStorm is excellent and only costs $99 -- sometimes freely available products just don't match up. Posted Image It might be worth looking at the features on offer.

I'm sure others will have suggestions of free options you can try though.

Check out the PDT Plugin for Eclipse: http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/PHP This is what I've used and it supports debugging via XDebug so that you can step through your code while it executes.

You'll need to download and install Eclipse before installing the plugin but both are free: http://www.eclipse.org/

Personally i wouldn't do without PHPDesigner, available at http://www.mpsoftwar...phpdesigner.php . You can get a personal license for $40.. it's not free, but it does a hell of a lot and includes a pretty good intellisense capability that allows the IDE to recognize the classes you put into the project.

Oh, and you can debug your PHP right through the IDE.

Havent done any PHP work in years but I would highly recommend PHPED, try it for a few days, I doubt you will be disappointed, cant really compare it to any other PHP ide but it does excellent debugging features among other things

I was in your shoes about 6 months back and started working on bigger projects. I found that Netbeans helped me quite alot with both debugging and change tracking.

Try it. It's free at least.
