I'm trying to install a WordPress plugin which relies upon ionCube Loader and it is throwing an error saying that it can't find ionCube Loader. The plugin author's suggestion was to check the phpinfo file to make sure ionCube Loader is listed, and sure enough, it isn't on there. However, when I run php -m on the server, it lists ionCube Loader among the modules.

Is there a reason it wouldn't be showing up in the phpinfo file? Or some reason that it might not be accessible to the plugin I'm trying to use?

The IonCube module should be setup for all our PHP 5.X versions available on the site. If you are using PHP 7.X then you need to set it up manually.

cd ~
mkdir -p src
cd ~src
wget http://downloads3.ioncube.com/loader_downloads/ioncube_loaders_lin_x86-64.tar.gz
tar xzf ioncube_loaders_lin_x86-64.tar.gz
cd ~/webapps/myapp
vim php.ini

Then add the extension to that file:

zend_extension = /home/<user>/src/ioncube/ioncube_loader_lin_7.0.so

And that should be it, hope this helps!
