Manual "ionCube" installation

You can do it your self, if you have access to the PHP configuration file “php.ini”. Most hosting service allow you to either create a custom PHP configuration file inside any of your folders, or they provide a PHP configuration editor inside their control panels.

Depending on the PHP details that you checked above, your configuration line might look like this:

For linux and php 5.5, add a line like this:

zend_extension = /usr/local/ioncube/

For FreeBSD and php 5.3, add a line like this

zend_extension_ts = /usr/local/ioncube/

For Windows and php 5.5, add a line like this

zend_extension_ts = c:WINNTioncube_loader_win_5.5.dll

It is always best and easier to contact your hosting company tech support and ask them about the appropriate configuration line.
