My PHP version is 5.2.6, my OS is Debian 5.0 x86-64. I am trying to install the Ioncube loader for PHP but I'm having a little trouble with it. What I have done.
- I have downloaded the correct loaders package from here http://downloads2.ioncube.com/loader_downloads/ioncube_loaders_lin_x86-64.tar.gz
- I have uploaded the ioncube_loader_lin_5.2.so to my PHP extension_dir so now it's located here: /usr/lib/php5/20060613/ioncube_loader_lin_5.2.so
- I have added this line in my php.ini file: zend_extension = /usr/lib/php5/20060613/ioncube_loader_lin_5.2.so
- I have checked the php.ini file for any other zend_extension directives but there are none so I just put the zend_extension = /usr/lib/php5/20060613/ioncube_loader_lin_5.2.so on the bottom of the file.
- I have restarted Apache
After the steps above, I have created phpinfo.php file with this:
I have loaded the page in my browser and Ioncube is still not enabled. Am I missing something? Did I forget about some important step?
