IonCube install

apps

#1

Does anyone have experience with this on a hosted site. I followed the instructions for my site running PHP 5.3 posted on the Wiki here, http://wiki.dreamhost.com/IonCube_Loader, and still no joy. I’m really not sure where to go from here as this is my first time trying to use something like this on a hosted site.

Thanks in advance…

A forum search will lead you to a number of discussions on this very topic.

There is also an auto-install script another user has made available: http://sxi.sabrextreme.com/phpion

Thanks that did the trick, not sure why dreamhost would not suggest adding a cgi-bin folder to do it…

We don’t suggest creating one because it’s not necessary. :slight_smile: “cgi-bin” directories receive no special treatment at DreamHost.

If you’re trying to install IonCube for PHP 5.3, see the instructions at http://wiki.dreamhost.com/PHP.ini#PHP_5.3 — those instructions aren’t specific to IonCube, but should work for it, as well as any other PHP extension.
