How to install ioncube (Ubuntu, Debian, Cent OS)?
bash <(curl -s 'https://gist.githubusercontent.com/asabirov/54338a1e37e7fd14db9c9845376c745e/raw/7c7afc9312c2eaa2d518119ba227cef50afe23ca/install_ioncube.sh')
Why ioncube is disabled in installer?
PHP has several configs “php.ini”. If ioncube is enabled in the console version
php -m it may not be connected to the server version.
Create a file in the domain directory info.php with code:
<?php phpinfo() ?>
Check if there is a line
the ionCube PHP Loader (enabled)....
- Restart a server to update the php configuration.
- Find configuration files of the server php. Usually they are at /etc/php5/fpm/, /etc/php5/apache/. Connect the extension there.
