What is IonCube ?

Prepare Webserver and PHP
I assume you already have apache webserver and php installed on your server.

Download IonCube and Install it :
Login as root into your server

$mv ioncube /usr/local
Find your php.ini
$php -i | grep php.ini

Loaded Configuration File => /usr/local/lib/php.ini
Edit your php.ini
$pico /usr/local/lib/php.ini
### add this line in your php.ini
## save this file
Important : if you have zend optimizer and zend manager installed on your php
Please make sure ioncube_loader is on the top of zend list.
Ex php.ini :
Restart Webserver

Verify your PHP with phpinfo or php -v
$php -v
