Exception while debugging admin cp with ZendDebugger


Well-known member
I'd like to go with debugger through some admin cp places. I'm having Zend Server CE installed with Eclipse. Debugging frontend works just fine, but when I enter admincp it throws me an exception:

An exception occurred: Controller response exception: XenForo_ControllerResponse_Reroute in C:\Program Files (x86)\Zend\Apache2\htdocs\XenForo\library\XenForo\Controller.php on line 735
  1. XenForo_Controller->responseException()inXenForo/ControllerAdmin/Abstract.phpat line93
  2. XenForo_ControllerAdmin_Abstract->assertAdmin()inXenForo/ControllerAdmin/Abstract.phpat line16
  3. XenForo_ControllerAdmin_Abstract->_preDispatchType()inXenForo/Controller.phpat line374
  4. XenForo_Controller->preDispatch()inXenForo/FrontController.phpat line302
  5. XenForo_FrontController->dispatch()inXenForo/FrontController.phpat line132
  6. XenForo_FrontController->run()inC:/Program Files (x86)/Zend/Apache2/htdocs/XenForo/admin.phpat line13
If I browse admincp without eclipse using just browser it works fine. It seems it has some problems with catching an exception that is thrown when non-admin steps on admin pages, but I have no idea why that happens and how to fix it.

same here, did anyone get to the bottom of this or find a work around... I really need to debug the admin area

My Zend issue was related to a redirect...

I make sure I always start at debugging at the main index File (before navigating to the ACP)
and set the URL to : http:localhost/ ..... xenforo/index.php

at least I think that's what I did
