"Waiting for xdebug session" problem with Eclipse/Xdebug remote debug

I came across this problem when I tried to setup remote debugging with xdebug: When I tried to debug a php web page it hanged up with the message - waiting for Xdebug session (57%). I have been struggling for a while, when i have realizes i have forgot to restart apache after installing and setting up xdebug, so if you have the same problem as I had, maybe the solution is simpler than you think :)

Another problem I had was that eclipse have not obeyed the breakpoints that xdebug have sent to it. Well, if remote debugging won't stop at breakpoints, the solution can be to comment out

#extension=xdebug.so

from php.ini and add only

zend_extension=/path/to/xdebug/module/xdebug.so
