    Post HOW TO: Install IonCube Loader

    There will be a time when you need IonCube loader in order to run PHP scripts encoded with IonCube. So here's a quick guide which will tell you how to install IonCube loader using SHELL.
    • Root Shell Access to your server.
    • Download the loader suitable for your server from here:
    • Unpack the binary file by using this command tar -zxvf ioncube_loaders.tar.gz (Change the ioncube_loaders.tar.gz to the file name appropriate for your server)
    • After extracting it will create a folder called ioncube. Now use this command: cd ioncube
    • Copy ioncube-install-assistant.php to a web directory by typing this command cp ioncube-install-assistant.php /home/userdirectoryhere/www
    • Visit that file by going to
    • And you should see something like below (depends on your server and configurations):

    PHP Version 4.3.3
    Operating System Linux
    Threaded PHP No
    php.ini file /usr/local/lib/php.ini
    Required Loader
    • Go back to where you extracted the ioncube folder by using cd..
    • Now move the ioncube folder in a safe and permanent location by using command: mv ioncube /usr/local
    • Now edit the php.ini file for example: pico /usr/local/lib/php.ini
    • Look for [zend] by typing CTRL + W and typing [zend]
    • Paste the following line under [zend], zend_extension = /usr/local/ioncube/
    • Press CTRL + X, type Y and press Enter.
    • Restart the server by typing: /etc/init.d/httpd restart
    • Your installation is done.

    *If you have Zend Optimizer installed then put the ioncube loader line before the Zend Optimizer line, else you will receive any error.

    Alternatively, you could simply log in to cPanel through WHM(http://IPHERE:2086/" and then press "EasyApache" and then when you rebuild it, simply enable IonCube Loader.

    Its really as simple as that!

    Thats incorrect and the 5.3 will work with a 32bit OS. Why do you think they include it in the 32bit download?

    Keep getting this error. If anyone can help it be wonderful.

    Please note that the following problem currently exists with the ionCube Loader installation:

    The loader file /var/chroot/home/content/66/10364366/html/ioncube/, listed in the configuration file, /home/content/66/10364366/html/php5.ini, does not exist or is not accessible.
