Installing ionCube PHP Loader in Windows and Linux

If you are stuck with the below errors, this may be good tutorial for you.

.....requires the ionCube PHP Loader ioncube_loader_win_5.4.dll to be installed by the website operator. If you are the website operator please use the ionCube Loader Wizard to assist with installation.

In Windows
Please go to download the IonCube loader from the IonCube website and you unzip the file and click the loader-installer.exe and the window pop-up.
To install in your local computer, please use the below format;
Installation Type: Local machine
Base URL: http://localhost/
Base directory: your_htdocs_folder_full_path (e.g. C:\Bitnami\wampstack\apache2\htdocs, C:\xampp\htdocs)

Then, click the start and once installation process completes, please restart the apache. Also, if you goto php.ini file, the zend_extension="your_ioncube_dll_path" is added to the beginning of the file, which you can move to the right place within the file.

FYI: I would be adding to do same on Linux soon..


To Enable the ionCube PHP Loader for WHMCS installation.
1. Please download the Linux package (64 bits or 32 bits) form the IonCube Loader page.
2. Unzip the files and create a ioncube/ in your public_html/ folder and move all those extracted files in it.
3. Create the php.ini file with below content in it.
zend_extension = "/home/your_site_username/public_html/ioncube/"

4. Then copy the above php.ini file across in your WHMCS main folder (where you are going to install), its install/, admin/ folders.

Then, try refreshing the page. It should be working.
