$ tar -zxvf ioncube_loaders.tar.gz

5.) Now lets move the iconcube directory to a permanent location:
$ mv ioncube /usr/local
6.) Now that you know the location of php.ini you need to edit it.
$ vi /usr/local/Zend/etc/php.ini
Now find where other zend extentions are in the file.
Paste in your new line for ioncube loader, please paste before the original zend extension.
zend_extension = /usr/local/ioncube/ioncube_loader_lin_5.2.so
7.) Restart the web server to take effect.
$ /etc/init.d/httpd restart
Success! You should now see a section in your PHP Info page that says:
