IonCube Installation

Ioncube is already installed on all of our servers. Before your scripts may use Ioncube, you will need to generate a new php.ini file with Ioncube already configured.

Installing IonCube

To install IonCube:

  1. Log in to your Bluehost cPanel account.
  2. Find the Programming section.
  3. Choose the PHP Config tool.
  4. Check the box labeled "IonCube" under "Additional extensions available for Installation"
  5. Click "SAVE CHANGES"
    Note: If you currently have a file labeled php.ini in your public_html folder, the system will rename the file and add this new one.
Note: For these changes to apply to any site or files hosted outside of your public_html directory you will need to change your php settings to use Single php.ini or FastCGI. For instructions on how to do this please see our article PHP Config
