PHP Dev Expert - need help in setup for Debugging PHP 5.3 webservices code (debug incoming requests)

Posted last month

hi, I need an expert PHP developer to help me setup a new machine (windows 11 Pro) on which I want to run some PHP 5.3 webservices and be able to debug them(xDebug) , IMPORTANT: "stepping into code" debug when requests from remote clients hit the webservice and thus allow us to inspect how the webservice is handling the requests, variables etc.
Note: I have seen articles referencing: xdebug.remote_autostart = 1, xdebug.remote_enable = 1

Tentative task list:
- installing the XAMPP windows / apache web server
- configure the virtual dir / app for the  PHP webservices code to run in that Apache instance
- install PHP 5.3 for windows, and configure the above mentioned code to use it, or the entire apache/xampp to use only PHP 5.3
- install xDebug and configure it to allow the debug/step into code for the PHP webservices code when it receives a remote request

- IDE: ideally it would be great to be able to use VS Code as the debugger
- or PHPstorm as a second option

- ideal case would be for you to have previous experience setting up a similar scenario (thus you can rehearse on your side with any generic webservice code i.e. HelloWorld...)

if all goes well, there may be future consulting work helping us support / modernize PHP code;
- PostgreSQL experience would be great for future, but not critical for this case
