Hello,

I had ionCube installed and up and running via GoDaddy Budget Hosting. I am now on a VSP, which is probably a bit over my head and extremely frustrated.

[removed]

Site error: the file /home/drivingpins/public_html/wp-content/themes/pinclone/functions.php requires the ionCube PHP Loader ioncube_loader_lin_5.4.so to be installed by the website operator. If you are the website operator please use the ionCube Loader Wizard to assist with installation.

I've installed ionCube, but it's installing above the root level and I am unable to get this resolved for the WP Site to run properly.

I don't think this is the right configuration. I did this via WHM (VPS) and the change to define the call on php5.ini or .user.ini

There are two separate PHP installations on a cPanel server. One is internal for cPanel, and the other is for the sites that you host.

The ioncube option in Home » Server Configuration » Tweak Settings installs IonCube Loader for the internal cPanel PHP. The internal cPanel PHP is only used for Webmail, phpMyAdmin, phpPgAdmin, and plug-ins that run inside cPanel. It has nothing to do with your sites, and that is why your site reports that IonCube is not installed.

To install IonCube for the PHP that runs your sites, log into the server as root via SSH and run this command:

Code:
# /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/phpextensionmgr install IonCubeLoader
That will install IonCube Loader in the PHP that runs your hosted Web sites. You can use phpextensionmgr to install the following PHP extensions as well:

Code:
# /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/phpextensionmgr list
Available Extensions:
EAccelerator
IonCubeLoader
Zendopt
Xcache
SourceGuardian
PHPSuHosin
# /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/phpextensionmgr help
Usage:
    phpextensionmgr [options] [action] [extension]

        Options:
          --help       Help message
          --prefix     Installation prefix for PHP (normally /usr/local)

        Actions:
          install      Install or update the extension
          uninstall    Uninstall the extension
          status       Display the installation status of the extension
          list         Show available extensions
