Versions: 5.5.0+

To install VIMP Light, VIMP Ultimate [Standard], VIMP Campus or VIMP Enterprise, you need the SourceGuardian PHP extension.

This article describes how to install the extension on Debian 12 (Bookworm) (64-bit) with PHP 8.2. More information about using SourceGuardian can be found here.

A wizard for installing the latest SourceGuardian loaders can be found here.

The general procedure is as follows:

First create a temporary directory "loader" under /usr/src/ and change to it:

mkdir /usr/src/loader
cd /usr/src/loader

Load the package, here Linux 64-bit, directly into the new directory:


apt install curl
curl --output loaders.linux-x86_64.tar.gz

Now unzip the file there:

tar xzf loaders.linux-x86_64.tar.gz

Copy the file matching your PHP version in the "extension_dir" of your PHP configuration:

cp ixed.8.2.lin /usr/lib/php/20220829/

Edit the php.ini of FPM:

nano /etc/php/8.2/fpm/php.ini

And add the following directive:


and then save it.

Now we open the php.ini of the CLI:

nano /etc/php/8.2/cli/php.ini

And add the same directive here as well:


Now we restart PHP-FPM:

service php8.2-fpm restart

Then, depending on the use, we will restart NGINX:

service nginx restart

or Apache2

service apache2 restart

The extension is now active for PHP and the CLI and will be decrypted for VIMP.
