    How to install ionCube loader

    FatCow Web Hosting
    Telnet sends clear text passwords and usernames through logins and should be disabled on all web servers and replaced with SSH.

    Some hosting providers are not disabling telnet by default but you should ensure that it has been turned off as it's a great security risk to your servers. TELNET server listens for incoming messages on port 23, and sends outgoing messages to port 23.

    1. Login to your server through SSH and su to root.

    2. Type pico /etc/xinetd.d/telnet

    3. Look for the line: disable = no and replace with disable = yes

    4. Now restart the inetd service: /etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd restart

    5. Turn off it through chkconfig as well because it can still start through that.
    /sbin/chkconfig telnet off

    6. Scan your server to ensure port 23 is closed.
    nmap -sT -O localhost
    Also run ps -aux | grep telnet and if you find anything other than "grep telnet" as result kill the process.

    Re: How to install ionCube loader

    I'm trying to figure out why this thread's subject is how to install IonCube, yet the content OP posted relates to Telnet/SSH. For those actually wondering how to install IonCube, you can enable it server-wide (using PHP.ini config), or per website by adding the required files to your site (run-time loader).

    Here are the instructions straight from IonCube:

    The subject of this thread is misleading. post is saying about using ssh instead of telnet.

    Can any mod do something about it.

    Sorry for bumping the thread.

    This is the easiest way and more succesful way :
    Code:
     /scripts/phpextensionmgr install IonCubeLoader
    cPanel Web hosting by AlbertHost.com
