Debugger Pepper

By Shaun Inman

A paneless Pepper used temporarily to debug your Mint installation. Please make a backup of your Mint database before installing/uninstalling this Pepper.

Be sure to uninstall or at the very least disable debugging once a problem has been diagnosed or resolved. The Debugger Pepper introduces additional database overhead which is an unnecessary waste of resources when Mint is operating normally.

Release Notes

Latest version
Version 0.04

Be sure to uninstall older versions of Debugger Pepper before installing this update.

  • Added local_dt value for comparison against server time (to diagnose why cookies with defined expiration dates are being ignored by the browser)
  • Fixed divide by zero bug that appears only before any debugged visits have been recorded

Some definitions:

  • Untrackable means that the browser requested the Mint JavaScript include but for some reason didn’t run the code
  • Uncookieable means that the browser requested the Mint JavaScript include and a hit was recorded but cookies could not be set to determine whether the visitor was unique or a repeat
Version 0.03
  • When column now includes date
  • Added IP address search (clicking an IP address in the debug output will filter/search)
  • Added filters for untrackable and uncookieable visitors (percentages listed relate to Debugger-recorded total visits, not unique visitors)
Version 0.02
  • fixed path issue in info.php
Version 0.01
  • Highlights how current visits timespans are affected by a hit
  • Show approximate round-trip time to record a visit (approximation includes network transfer time)
  • Tracks raw user agent string (without UA007) to help identify potential problem browsers
  • Uses a password embedded in the query string to prevent unwanted eyes from viewing (add &info to view a formatted phpinfo())
  • Basic functionality, highlights missed hits due to images being disabled or cookies being disabled
