Ion Cube Accelerator

I’m trying to get Ion Cube PHP Accelerator working to speed up my EzPublish-based sites. Here’s what I know:

  1. I re-compiled php as as a CGI and put it in /cgi-bin/php.cgi, gave myself a php.ini with the zend_extension line in, test.php works fine and shows the accelerator installed.

  2. I removed the .htaccess line to enable the newly compiled php.cgi and added php_value zend_extension /path/to/my/optimizer… again, test.php ran, no problemo, optimizer is installed, life is good, god is in heaven and all is right with the world.

  3. I changed the cgi-bin option for web hosting to compiled module and left the .htaccess with the php_value lines in the dir and test.php runs, but no accelerator. Why does .htaccess not enable the optimizer under the module but does enable the optimizer under a cgi-bin?

Sorry, this is me. I posted before I logged in.
