For security reasons, Studio Server encrypts some of its PHP modules by using ionCube.
Installing or upgrading ionCube is part of the installation or upgrading steps of Studio Server, but in case the installation of ionCube needs to be repeated, use the steps outlined below.
The process of checking the currently installed version of ionCube and guiding you through any upgrade steps is built in to Studio Server.
Step 1. Try accessing the Studio Server Health Check page by entering the following URL in a Web browser:
http://<your server URL>/StudioServer/server/wwtest
The installation of ionCube is automatically tested. During this process, you might see various progress bars appear. Depending on the result of the test, the following will happen:
- The Health Check page appears. This means that ionCube Loader is correctly installed. No further action is required.
- The ionCube Loader Wizard for Studio Server appears. This means that the ionCube Loader is not correctly installed or that an incorrect version is installed. The information provided on the page will give you an indication of the exact problem and how to resolve it.
Step 2. Follow the outlined steps.
Step 3. Repeat step 1 until no more errors appear.
