How to install ionCube Loaders


I cannot find the ionCube Loaders installation script in the virtualmin. Do you provide the support for it?

Thanks, Giang Anh



Howdy -- while the WHMCS Install Script does install the ionCube loaders, there isn't actually a standalone script just for installing them.

You would either need to manually install ionCube, or you could install WHMCS, and get the ionCube functionality.


Thank you. How to install WHMCS in webmin?

Thanks, Giang Anh

WHMCS is a Virtualmin Install Script. It can be installed by going into the "Install Scripts" section for a particular domain in Virtualmin.


I found it. So I must purchase WHMCS license to use it?

Ah, I forgot that WHMCS asks for licensing information at install time.

I originally thought that you could install the WHMCS trial without having to enter any license info, but that's not the case.

You could always get a WHMCS trial, if you wanted.

But that's probably more work than just manually installing ionCube :-)

It's probably easiest just to manually install ionCube. The app you're trying to use likely has some installation instructions explaining how to get ionCube working. Which app are you trying to use there?


It's Joomla 3. Actually I installed ionCube already. However Joomla cannot detect it:

Your domains are actually using a per-domain php.ini file.

If you configured that in /etc/php.ini, it wouldn't be seen by your individual domains.

Does it work if you add it to the domain's php.ini file, located in $HOME/etc/php.ini?

I follow your suggestion and add the line below to the ini file and it works. Thank you. zend_extension = /usr/local/ioncube/
