Installing the SourceGuardian PHP Extension for CentOS 6.6 (64-bit/amd64/x86_64) with WHM / cpanel

Support Portal  »  Knowledgebase (FAQ)  »  Viewing Article

Editions: Light, Community, Professional, Ultimate [Standard], Corporate
Versions: all

Installations of VIMP Light, VIMP Community, VIMP Professional, VIMP Ultimate [Standard] and VIMP Corporate require the PHP extension SourceGuardian.

This article explains the installation of the extension for CentOS release 6.6 (Final) 64-bit with installed WHM/cpanel.

With "easyapache" WHM offers an easy way to change the PHP- and apache version.

Most servers with installed CentOS 6.6 and WHM/cpanel use PHP 5.4 . Please change the PHP version in WHM or use one of the other SourceGuardian articles here, that meet your PHP version.

Further information on the usage of SourceGuardian can be found here.

If you have a 32-bit system (e.g. i686), just change the wget command, that downloads the loader. You find an overview of all loaders on the SourceGuardian-website.

First create a temporary folder "loader" at /usr/src/:

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

Download the sourceguardian package (64-bit here) directly into the new folder:


Now extract the file:

tar xzf loaders.linux-x86_64.tar.gz

Copy the file that meets your PHP version like this:

cp ixed.5.4.lin /usr/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20100525/

"ts" in the filenames means "Thread Safety". If "Thread Safety" is enabled (usually not), copy the file ixed.5.4ts.lin instead.

Now login as Administrator in WHM

Open the "PHP Configuration editor", and choose "advanced" settings that shows all PHP configurations in a form. Search for zend_extension and add ixed.5.4.lin as value.

After saving the new configuration will be read and apache restarts. Sourceguardian is installed now.
