    like you know how you can do traces etc in C# and C++ with Visual studio etc... is there a way to do debugging with php and mysql as well

    There is, but it sucks, imo. You need to publish to a modified php/apache install on the local machine with a bunch of hooks installed. It's not a good representation of a production system, and doesn't provide too much insight, anyway. Zend Studio is the one that I'm talking about.

    I've tried many "systems" and I always come back to using Visual SlickEdit and manually debugging. If it's not working as expected, write a debug routine, find the problem, fix it, move on.

    .net provides good debugging. The benefit of a "real" language adopted for script use, from a closed-source company that controls both the web server, language, development environment, etc.... They control everything start-to-finish and they did it with a real application-driven mentality so it has the debugging facilities that other script languages lack.
