I am trying to use Xdebug for magento 1. However, Xdebug no longer supports PHP under 7.0. Magento 1 on the other hand only works for php 5.

Does anyone know any solution to this problem. enter image description here

  • Do note that PHP 5.6 will reach EoL at the end of this year. To stay PCI compliant, you'll need PHP 7.2. I recommend developing against 7.2 to stay ahead of this curve (unless you are 100% sure that the bug you're debugging is specific to PHP 5.6). Commented Sep 11, 2018 at 17:58

You can download older versions of xdebug which are compatible with php 5.

You can see and download all the versions released till now here - https://xdebug.org/download.php

Just scroll down and look for a compatible version to your corresponding php.
