    Hi,

    I'm a nubie to this.

    I know the basics of the NetBeans debugger and know how to debug a simple application to, for example, find the maximum value in an array.

    I have to fix and modify a database application written by someone else.

    Essentially it is a simple web browser form that allows the user to update columns in a MySQL table. I want to be able to enter data in the form and click "submit" (i.e. commit the changes to DB), and then be able to trace the sequence of steps that the script executes.

    Is this possible with the NetBeans debugger? If so, where can I find documentation about doing this?

    Configuration: Mac OS X 10.6.7, Apache 2.2, PHP 5.3, MySQL 5.1.39, NetBeans 7

    Thanks very much for your help.

    Don't know what I was doing wrong before the above post, but now things are working as I expected.
