What is the best and easiest way to debug PHP code at run-time (step-over) with breakpoints. So that I can view the values on run-time and can debug easily. So, I want to know which php server and IDE works well with XDebug and easiest to configure with those. To be honest, I have tried 3-4 times in my life in last 7-8 years staring from win XP to Win 7 to setup xdebug with an IDE and a server and have failed, now again I need it in Win 8. I believe I can do it this time with your help.

I just want any IDE with any server to work with xdebug in Win 8, so that I can pause execution at a break-point and see values of the variables. I do not even want to change values at run-time, just need to see those.
