# Ioncube Loader PHP 5.5 not installed

I try to install Ioncube Loader with XAMPP and PHP 5.5.
I need this for XT Commerce on my local machine.
But I can't install it correctly.
I unzip this folder to

C:\xampp\htdocs\ioncube


After that I open the Test Page (
http://localhost/ioncube/loader-wizard.php?page=loader_check
)
and I get errors like:

The following problem has been found with the Loader installation:

The necessary zend_extension line could not be found in the configuration file, C:\xampp\php\php.ini.


So I Add this Line to my php.ini:

zend_extension = "C:\xampp\htdocs\ioncube\ioncube_loader_win_5.5.dll"


I restart my Apache Server, and try again.
But now I didn't get errors ... but also a message that Iconcube isn't install correctly:

The ionCube Loader is not currently installed successfully.

Please check that the Apache web server software has been restarted.

So what now? How can I install the ioncube Loader 5.5?

IonCube has a ready solution which leads you step by step. Just use wizard/installer from their page:

Installing with the Loader Installer or Loader Wizard (recommended)

It is recommended to install a Loader using the Loader Installer. The Installer is a Windows application that can deploy a Loader automatically to any supported operating system over FTP or SFTP. If this cannot be used, we also provide a Loader Wizard PHP script that gives guidance on installing manually.
