Installing IonCube Loader

1. Download the program and store it on your server using wget or FTP.

http://www.ioncube.com/loader_download.php

2. Unpack the program
tar -zxvf ioncube_loaders.tar.gz

3. cd ioncube

4. copy ioncube-install-assistant.php to a web directory such as your hosting directory and open it in your browser window.
cp ioncube-install-assistant.php /home/userdirectoryhere/www

5. Now lets move the iconcube directory to a permanent location:

cd ..
mv ioncube /usr/local

6. Now that you know the location of php.ini you need to edit it.
pico /usr/local/lib/php.ini

Now find where other zend extentions are in the file.
ctrl + w: zend_extension

Paste in your new line for ioncube loader
zend_extension = /usr/local/ioncube/ioncube_loader_lin_4.3.so

(NOTE) Check php version if it is 5.2 then entry should be ioncube_loader_lin_5.2.so

7. Save the changes
ctrl + X then Y and enter

8. Restart the web server to take effect.
/etc/init.d/httpd restart

Enjoy
