Install ioncube on ubuntu error


I need to install ioncube on ubuntu so I did the following:
IonCube protects software written using the PHP programming language from being viewed, changed, and run on unlicensed computers.

1. Download ionCube loaders

sudo wget

2. Extract

sudo tar zxvf ioncube_loaders_lin_x86.tar.gz

3. Move to a permanent location

sudo mv ioncube /usr/local/

4. Add reference to your php.ini file (sudo pico /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini)

zend_extension = /usr/local/ioncube/

There are a few versions of the loader in the tar archive. Use the one that matches your PHP version.

5. Restart apache

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

6. check installation using following command:
php -v
you should see following output:

PHP 5.1.6 (cli) (built: Apr 7 2009 08:00:04)
Copyright (c) 1997-2006 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.1.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2006 Zend Technologies
with the ionCube PHP Loader v3.1.34, Copyright (c) 2002-2009, by ionCube Ltd.

Open in new window

Everything went ok, except the last command: php -v gave the following message:
php -v

And when I want to install the real program that uses IonCube, the web page is blank.

Can you help me?

Thank you

I solved it finally: I started loader-wizard.php  and this showed me what the error was
Ioncube is loaded according to that. Which program are you running, have you checked the log files for that program and also enabled debugging mode if it has one?
