Configuring WAMP server to work on Windows 10 with Netbeans

I’ve been doing more PHP lately and ran accross a problem that I needed to debug locally. So I downloaded WAMP and of course it didn’t work the first try, so I downloaded an update for it that fixed the launching error that it was having. It would launch, but only 1 of the 2 services was running. After doing some research I found that Apache wasn’t starting. After some help from Google I found that I needed to change the port from 80 to 8080. That worked, but then after all of the configurations in Netbeans I couldn’t get the debugger to work. After a long time and some research and trial and error I found that I needed to make the following changes in the php.ini:

zend_extension =”c:/wamp/bin/php/php5.6.25/zend_ext/php_xdebug-2.4.1-5.6-vc11.dll”

After doing that it worked just fine. I’m putting this in mainly for my own reference, but maybe it can help someone else if they encounter similar problems.
