I've been trying to install ionCube onto my server but have not been having a lot of luck! My server is:
Windows 2008 64bit
PHP 5.3.14 Thread Safe disabled running as FastCGI
In my PHP.ini I have :
zend_extension="C:\Program Files (x86)\PHP\ext\ioncube_loader_win_5.2.dll"
The path is correct. The DLL is from the x86 NONTS VC9 version of ionCube and PHP is using the MSVC9 (Visual C++ 2008) compiler though I have also tried using the x86 NONTS VC6 version of ionCube.
I'm not getting any error but I'm also not getting ionCube when using phpinfo():
This program makes use of the Zend Scripting Language Engine: Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2012 Zend Technologies
Apart from the mail application pools I have also set all the applications in the application pool in IIS7 to use 32bit mode.
I don't know if FastCGI is running under 64 or 32 bit mode nor how to switch it or whether it would make a difference?
I know it can be a problem installing ionCube onto 64bit Windows but I have also come across threads whereby other people have also [somehow] managed to get it working but even though I seem to be doing the same as them I still can't get it working.
