With the update to Xdebug v.2.9.0 the web interface is missing the xdebug.remote_handler attribute (it is still there in the CLI) - and hence the debugging will not work.

There was a bug fix (bug #1720) that reported the removal of a "superfluous debug.remote_handler setting" - which seems to be not that superfluous at all..?!

Expected result:
Please return xdebug.remote_handler to the web interface.

Xdebug does no longer need this setting, as it could only ever have one value. Xdebug also does not have a web interface, so I am not sure what you are referring to?

Just setting xdebug.remote_handler=dbgp in php.ini should still work, but will just have no effect as it hasn't done in the last 15 years.
