Enabling the IonCube Loader

Before starting the Scriptcase installation, you need to enable the loader used for the Scriptcase encryption in your PHP. Follow the steps below showing how to dot it.

1 - Access the Downloads folder and extract the file downloaded referent to the IonCube Loader at the beggining of this documentation.

Example:

cd /home/User/Downloads

sudo chmod 777 ioncube_loaders_lin_x86-64.zip && unzip ioncube_loaders_lin_x86-64.zip

2 - Copy the file ioncube_loader_lin_7.3.so and past in the extension_dir directory of your PHP. We will use the path /usr/lib/php/20180731 for this example.

Example:

Ubuntu 19.10\Debian 8 CentOS 7/8
/usr/lib/php/20180731 /usr/lib64/php/modules

sudo cp ioncube_loader_lin_7.3.so /usr/lib/php/20180731

3 - Edit the php.ini file and below the last line set the path to the extension in the zend_extension parameter:

Example:

Ubuntu 19.10\Debian 8 CentOS 7/8
/etc/php/7.3/apache2/ /etc/

sudo nano /etc/php/7.3/apache2/php.ini

zend_extension = "/usr/lib/php/20180731/ioncube_loader_lin_7.3.so"

4 - Restart the Apache service using the following command:

Ubuntu 19.10\Debian 8 CentOS 7/8
sudo service apache2 restart sudo systemctl restart httpd

IMPORTANT: To enable the IonCube in the CentOS, the SELinux service must be disabled. Check the service status using the command: sestatus.
To disabled the service, access the file settings using the command sudo nano /etc/selinux/config and change the SELINUX and SELINUXTYPE directives as this: SELINUX=disabled e SELINUXTYPE=minimum. After that, save the file and restart your Centos to apply the changes and enable the IonCube.
