VirtueMart Problems after IonCube Install



I’ve taken over a site from a developer and moved it to DH. We were getting some errors in the USPS Click-n-Ship VM module indicating that IonCube was required, but was not installed. I had to use the dh-phpion.php script to get IonCube installed properly.

The public site works as expected at this point and everything on the administrative backend works except VM. The VM Component is on the Components menu, but when I open this I am presented with a blank screen. All the icons for VM are completely missing.

I had done a backup just before the IonCube changes so I restored the site from the backup, but this has not changed the behavior.

The installed version of VM is 1.1.5. I’m comfortable with Joomla, but this is way beyond my experience. Where do I go from here?
