ionCube installation not being recongnised

3 weeks 5 days ago #47902 by Graham
Hi All, I’m new here, just starting to find my way around Jomres in a test installation. What a powerful system – and I don’t even have the plugins loaded yet!

I don’t seem to be able to get the system to recognize the ionCube loader. I have carefully followed the instructions from the hosting co/ionCube, verified the PHP version (7.2.31) and root, used the ionCube loader wizard, verified that the installation has worked via loader wizard and phpinfo,.

Loader wizard now says: "The ionCube Loader version 10.4.0 for PHP 7.2 is already installed and encoded files should run without problems." But when loading the Jomres plugin manager page I still see the "Ioncube loaders are not installed on this system" message.

Any advice on what might have gone wrong there would be a great help. Thanks!

Hi Graham.

The check for the loaders being installed is performed in this script,

specifically where it says

if ( (strpos( strtolower($extension_name) , "ioncube" )) === false) {

Given the massive variety of configuration options webservers can have, it doesn't surprise me that a system might not report the available php extensions for PHP to work with.

Raise a ticket at with your ftp and admin's login details and I'll look into it for you.

As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was formally released as a commercial project. Since then, Jomres has become one of Mambo’s, and now Joomla’s, longest running projects. It has survived various versions of Mambo, then Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.

Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. Between 2010 and 2018 he was an integral part of the project and made many significant contributions.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and Vince have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous Valentina Template Override Package.
