- then select PHP > Extensions > click xdebug-2.5.5#### to enable it.
- Access in your browser the file you created in step 1, make sure that it shows xdebug installed.
- Open php.ini of laragon then at the bottom of the file, add:
[XDebug] xdebug.profiler_enable = 1 xdebug.profiler_output_dir = "C:\laragon\www\xdebug"
- IMPORTANT: make sure that this directory exists. This is where all data will be logged.

Basically Xdebug creates a file which contains all the information that it profiled on your web page. You can use a tool called QCacheGrind to display the results in a much easier to understand graphical interface.
