I am trying to use Easy PHP Calendar and it is requiring ionCube loader on the server. The problem is that I just can/t get it running. I am using the GoDaddy servers and, because they don't supply this product themselves, they will not help with this.
I am starting with just getting the basic ioncube-loader-helper.php to be happy. When it runs it just tells me:
An ionCube Loader file is required by PHP to
read files encoded with the ionCube Encoder.
This page will determine how you can install
Loaders on this particular server.
The loading of ionCube encoded files is not
currently working correctly on this server.
I figure that once this shows no problems then I can tackle getting the calendar application to run.
Here is what I have done so far:
* Since GoDaddy tells me that either 32 or 64 bit applications will run, I have selected the 32-64 bit version of the files.
* The version of PHP running is 5.2, so I selected the 5.2 versions of the files.
* I uploaded both the non-threadsafe file ioncube_loader_lin_5.2.so and the threadsafe file ioncube_loader_lin_5.2_ts.
so to an "ioncube" folder off of the root folder on the site.
* I then first tried the suggested instructions by putting in this change to the php.ini file in the root of the site (I have obscured the path, but I confirmed that it was correct by looking at $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].
Both with and without the 'Zend' section.
* I then tried it using both the non-thread and threadsafe entries (both with and without the 'Zend' section):
* I then found an interesting page in the GoDaddy help and I tried this in the php.ini file (both with and without the 'Zend' section):
I was told that changes to the php.ini files take affect when they are uploaded. Maybe this is incorrect. How can I send a command, in PHP, to re-read the php.ini file.
I would need to use PHP script, because I can't restart PHP on the GoDaddy server.
What step am I missing? What configuration am I missing?
Is there no hope in it working on this server?
