ionCube Installation Issues

Post by isource » Tue 27. Aug 2013, 16:47

I can't seem to get ionCube going.

I have:
Mac OS X Mountain Lion
MAMP 2.1.3
PHP 5.4.10

1. I downloaded ioncube_loaders_dar_x86-64 for Mac
2. Copied the whole "ioncube" folder to /Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.4.10/lib/php/extensions/
3.Opened /Applications/MAMP/conf/php5.4.10/php.ini and added around line 1088 the following: zend_extension="/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.4.10/lib/php/extensions/ioncube/"

But ionCube isn't recognized. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Finally found a solution :D

I needed ionCube Loader to instal a client relations manager called ClientExec.

What I did (running PHP 5.4.10):
1. Downloaded the version for Mac from I used the OS X (x86-64) copy
2. Find and copy the file loader-wizard.php within ClientExec (pre version 5)
3. Paste loader-wizard.php to your htdocs
4. In browser run http://localhost:8888/loader-wizard.php
5. Follow the instructions on the page. Something like
6. From the expanded OS X (x86-64) ioncube copy and paste into MAMP/bin/php/php5.4.10/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-(some number here)/
7. Then edit MAMP/bin/php/php5.4.10/conf/php.ini
8. Add zend_extension = /Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.4.10/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-(some number here)/ before any other zend_extension
9. On MAMP stop servers, then start servers
10. In your browser with still http://localhost:8888/loader-wizard.php open, follow the remaining instructions

That worked for me.
