Evergreen XDebug Issues

Hi there, this is a short description of the problem.

i have installed a LAMP server. apache2 is up and running correctly
MySql is up and running correctly, however for some reason i can not get xdebug to start. i also have netbeans 8.0.2 installed and trying to use xdebug to debug php code.

i have no clue of how to go about this as i haven’t done this before.

any help will be appreciated
