Did you run easyapache recently? Please check your main php.ini file (usually at /usr/local/lib/php.ini or get it from "php -i|grep php.ini" or "whereis php.ini" and check for any duplicate records for the ioncube loader.

Did you check which php.ini file that is being used? Is it the one at /usr/local/lib/php.ini ? If so, Please run the following just to make sure there is no duplicate records for that ioncube loader:

cat /usr/local/lib/php.ini |grep zend_extension

Otherwise, I would recommend commenting out the line with a semi colon and save the file, The final result should look like:

;zend_extension = "/usr/local/IonCube/ioncube_loader_lin_5.3.so"

Then you need to restart your webserver (I.E: apache) by running /etc/init.d/httpd restart and run "php -v" and see if ioncube is still listed there or not.

Hello :)

It's possible the account is using a customized php.ini file as opposed to /usr/local/lib/php.ini. Check to make sure there are no other php.ini files or IonCube installations within your account that are utilized by the script in question.

Thank you.
