Installing ionCube

Ástþór IPÁstþór IP

ionCube protects software written using the PHP programming language from being viewed, changed, and run on unlicensed computers.

1. Download ionCube loaders

wget http://downloads.ioncube.com/loader_downloads/ioncube_loaders_lin_x86.tar.gz

2. Extract

tar zxvf ioncube_loaders_lin_x86.tar.gz

3. Move to a permanent location

mv ioncube /usr/local/

4. Add reference to your php.ini file (pico /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini)

zend_extension = /usr/local/ioncube/ioncube_loader_lin_5.2.so

There are a few versions of the loader in the tar archive and you can choose the one that suites your needs

5. Restart apache

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

    Tanks for the great tutorial!! Install great on debian6 (squeeze).

    Only a tip to be more “debian like style/compatible”, the step 4 can be a file (ex. create a /etc/php5/conf.d/ioncube.ini) with the line zend_extension = /usr/local/ioncube/ioncube_loader_lin_5.2.so.
    It´s more compatible in future upgrades.

    Sorry for mispelling, english is not my main language, I´m Brazilian!

    Please make a new extion.ini in /etc/php5/cli/conf.d/ where all your extensions are. With making this you will keep your php.ini file clean and tight.

    Thank you VERY MUCH for the tutorial ! Bits here and there were outdated, 3 years after it was written, which is only natural, but for the most of it, it was perfect. I’m grateful 🙂

    If the mention may be of use to other people, on a Debian Wheezy, here are the differences from the present tutorial, that I had to face :
    – the poor installation Wizard required that I placed the ioncube directory, found in the installation archive, in /usr/lib/php5/20100525/
    – the same installation wizard asked me to place “20-ioncube.ini” in /etc/php5/conf.d/, this file was simply containing this text : “zend_extension = /usr/lib/php5/20100525/ioncube_loader_lin_5.4.so”
    – this required a small change, the required.so file had to be copied from /usr/lib/php5/20100525/ioncube/ to one directory above, purely /usr/lib/php5/20100525/
