IonCube Loader Installation doesn't work

January 7, 2015 3.1k views

Hey Community,
I tried to install the IonCube Loader following this tutorial an a LAMP-Droplet: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-ioncube-loade
My extension_dir is /usr/lib/php5/20121212/ and now there is the ioncube_loader_lin_5.5.so file. So it seems everything went quite allright.

But the echo var_export(extension_loaded('ionCube Loader') ,true); in http://188.166.32.188/ion.php outputs "false". And so does a SystemCheck for a Shop I'm trying to install: http://188.166.32.188/test/

What went wrong?

Best Regards
Ben Seitz

PS: I restarted apache already a few times and waited. Still nothing.

That tutorial targets Ubuntu 12.04 while the current LAMP Stack One-Click image is using 14.04

Append the line:

zend_extension = /usr/lib/php5/20121212/ioncube_loader_lin_5.5.so

to the file /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini and restart Apache:

sudo service apache2 restart

You should be all good to go now!

  • Works perfectly - maybe you could add this to the tutorial?

  • @asb
    sir, could you please assist me on installing ioncube on Nginx/ ubuntu 14.04?
    i searched the community and found many of others having issue on LEMP 14.04.

    thanks in advance
