How to install ioncube loader on Ubuntu in one line of code

To install ioncube loader on Ubuntu, AS ROOT paste this line:

cd /usr/local && wget http://downloads2.ioncube.com/loader_downloads/ioncube_loaders_lin_x86-64.tar.gz && tar xzf ioncube_loaders_lin_x86-64.tar.gz && echo "zend_extension=/usr/local/ioncube/ioncube_loader_lin_5.3.so" | sudo tee /etc/php5/conf.d/ioncube.ini

If you are using nginx, that would be:

cd /usr/local && wget http://downloads2.ioncube.com/loader_downloads/ioncube_loaders_lin_x86-64.tar.gz && tar xzf ioncube_loaders_lin_x86-64.tar.gz && echo "zend_extension=/usr/local/ioncube/ioncube_loader_lin_5.3.so" | sudo tee /etc/php5/fpm/conf.d/ioncube.ini

Please note that if you are using symlinks and maintaining a single php.ini and conf.d folder instead of separate ones for php5 and php5-fpm (good idea if you switch between apache2 and nginx), either one of the lines will work.

Restart php5 or php5-fpm as the case may be.

sudo service apache2 restart

or

sudo service php5-fpm restart
