I'm trying to install ionCube loader on a CentOS 5 machine.

when i check on the command line, php says ionCube loads fine:
php -v PHP 5.3.6 (cli) (built: Apr 19 2011 12:28:40) Copyright (c) 1997-2011 The PHP Group Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2011 Zend Technologies with the ionCube PHP Loader v4.0.5, Copyright (c) 2002-2011, by ionCube Ltd.

phpinfo() shows in the "Additional .ini files parsed" that /etc/php.d/ioncube.ini is indeed loaded and parse but ionCube doesn't work; ionCube encrypted files are shown as is rather than parsed and the phpinfo page shows no mention of ionCube (apart from the parsed ini file).
The ioncube.ini file content is:
