How to update ionCube Loader to the latest version for PHP 5.6, 7.0, 7.1 or 7.2 shipped by Plesk?

    I am running Plesk 17.8 and noticed that the update command below was wrong. It should be the second one...

    1. cp ioncube/ /opt/plesk/php/7.0/lib64/php/modules/

    2. cp ioncube/ /opt/plesk/php/7.0/lib/php/modules/


    The lib64 directory is just lib on my Ubuntu server.

    Thank for this note.
    Indeed, for Debian and Ubuntu it should be opt/plesk/php/X.X/lib/php/modules/

    The article was updated.

    @Luis, IonCube loader was not added yet for Plesk PHP 7.2. It will be added soon to Plesk PHP 7.2 package.

    For now, you may use workaround from this article.
