ionCube PHP Loader ioncube_loader_lin_5.2 Error Message


#1

Help :-/
I am trying to install Jeff Johnsons ‘Free Traffic Getting SEO Plugin’, onto a wordpress site. I’m able to upload it, but when I try to activate, I get the following error message :-

Site error: the file : wp-content/plugins/seo-blog/core.php requires the ionCube PHP Loader ioncube_loader_lin_5.2.so to be installed by the site administrator.

(NB : For security reasons I have deleted a bit at the front of this error message relating to my admin name & website)

I have found a good step by step resolution to this error message on Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=off_yy_8180). This involves deleting files BUT is shown on a standard cpanel dashboard (as opposed to dreamhosts custom built panel).

Unfortunately, I’m not a tecchie and therefore am unable to convert the teachings in the youtube video to Dreamhosts panel. Basically the recommendation is to delete the PHP.ini file & then re-install it (??)

Can someone let me know how I would do this (step by step please) in the Dreamhost Panel, OR advise how I can get the plug-in installed if there is an easier way.

Thanks

I know this thread is old, but it was the first hit listed on Google when I was searching for the same error, so here’s the answer I found:

Dreamhost does not appear to authorize changes to the php.ini file directly, which is what you need to do to activate IonCube. However, an automated script is available from http://sxi.sabrextreme.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3 that does it all for you. The script is free, though donations are accepted.

Worked perfectly for me.
