Ioncube installer on php 5.3

Hi, im quite new to this.
recently got a hosting account and wanted to install a script which i purchased but it needs ioncube installed.
Unfortunately dreamhost doesnt support the installation of ioncube and have diverted me to the wiki page.
I have tried following the instructions and some scripts available on the forum but have unsucessful.
If anyone can help on with simple steps would be highly appreciated. the creation of phprc file is not clear.
sorry about the simple question but its not working for me. Its a shame dreamhost cant support on this.

DH made it easy to customise PHP 5.3 (and 5.4).

Just read the sentence or two about phprc and disregard everything else :wink:
