Error after installing Ioncube

Written by Jahangir on October 17, 2008 – 3:10 pm -


PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library ‘/usr/lib/php/modules/ioncube/’ – /usr/lib/php/modules/ioncube/
The ionCube Loader is a Zend-Engine extension and not a module
Please specify the Loader using ‘zend_extension’ in php.ini
PHP Fatal error: Unable to start ionCube Loader module in Unknown on line 0

The ionCube Loader is a Zend-Engine extension and if the ionCube Loader is not specify properly in php.ini using ‘zend_extension’.


Only you need to specify the ionCube Loader properly in php.ini using ‘zend_extension’ like,

“zend_extension=/path to your ioncube folder/”

    Hi. I don’t get it. I read everywhere online saying that “you need to specify the ioncube loader properly in php.ini using zend_extension” What does that actually mean? Rename php.ini to your specified zend path for e.g. say to /usr/lib/php/modules/ioncube/ ???? This is so so confusing. I’ve been try to figure this out for 3 days now! Any help would be much appreciated.
