Install Ioncube on CentOS

I’ve seen many issues where Ioncube is required to be installed on a DA system. You can easily download and install it using the following steps;

Depending on your system OS/Platform select and download the loaders file which is compressed in different formats such as tar.gz, tar.bz2, zip. Make sure you select one which is of the recent date and of the latest version and extract it to /usr/local it will be extracted into the following directory;


Once done you need to add a line to your php.ini. It can be located using the following command;

php -i | grep php.ini

Once you get the path, just edit it using your favorate editor (vi or pico) in my case it’s vi

vi /etc/php.ini

search for extension and below that add;

zend_extension = /usr/local/ioncube/

Don’t forget to restart your web server after that, once done you won’t be getting the same errors for Ioncube as earlier.
