Installations of VIMP Light, VIMP Ultimate [Standard], VIMP Corporate Campus or VIMP Corporate Enterprise require the PHP extension SourceGuardian.
This article explains the installation of the extension for Ubuntu 20 (64-bit) with PHP 7.4 under Apache2, further information on the usage can be found here.
A wizard for installing the latest SourceGuardian loaders is located here.
The general procedure under Apache2 is as follows:
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:
curl https://www.sourceguardian.com/loaders/download/loaders.linux-x86_64.tar.gz --output loaders.linux-x86_64.tar.gz
Now extract the file:
tar xzf loaders.linux-x86_64.tar.gz
Copy the file that meets your PHP version like this:
cp ixed.7.4.lin /usr/lib/php/20190902/
"ts" in the filenames means "Thread Safety". If "Thread Safety" is enabled (usually it isn't), copy the file ixed.7.4ts.lin instead.
Now create the sourceguardian configuration file.
cd /etc/php/7.4/mods-available/ nano sourceguardian.ini
Enter the following lines into the file:
and save it.
Activate the PHP extension with the command:
The command has no output for errors or success.
service apache2 stop service apache2 start
Now the extension is installed for Apache2 and CLI and VIMP will be decrypted.
