Step # 01: Make sure the brew is updated

brew update

brew upgrade

brew install php72

Installing '/usr/local/Cellar/php/7.2.8/pecl/20170718/'

Then go to your php.ini (which you can find by running php --ini, and add these two lines to it:


Obviously, change the path to whatever was printed by the pecl xdebug installation.
