For this tutorial, you must already have a LAMP stack installed with a web server running.

Step 1: Downloading ionCube

First off, navigate to your web directory (for example /var/www/html). This depends on your web control panel or custom setup:

cd /var/www/html

In order to download ionCube for the 32-bit version of CentOS 6, execute:

wget http://downloads3.ioncube.com/loader_downloads/ioncube_loaders_lin_x86.tar.gz

For the 64-bit version of CentOS 6, execute:

wget http://downloads3.ioncube.com/loader_downloads/ioncube_loaders_lin_x86-64.tar.gz

Now, extract the file:

tar xvfz ioncube*

Rename the folder for easier access from the web:

mv ioncube* ioncube

Access the ionCube setup wizard by navigating to http://www.your-website.com/ioncube in your web browser.

Step 2: Finishing the wizard

In your browser, you will now see a wizard that needs to be completed. It contains some basic steps such as telling ionCube on what kind of server you’re using (in this case VPS/Dedicated server). Walk through the steps. When asked which PHP version you use, execute php -v on your server (this will return a version). Once finished, IonCube will be installed on your server.

You can now use ionCube-encrypted software, such as WHMCS, on your server!
