To install ionCube 5, run the following command on the command line, where ea-php## represents the version of PHP for which you wish to install ionCube:

yum install ea-php##-php-ioncube5

ionCube 24®

ionCube 5 introduced ionCube24®, which acts as a website monitoring and intrusion protection service for your website. If you enable ionCube24, the ionCube loader checks for changes to the files or file creation after a certain time (a Trustpoint). ionCube disables this feature by default. 

When you run the php -v command, you will see the following output:

ioncube24 disabled: with the ionCube PHP Loader (enabled) + Intrusion Protection from ioncube24.com (unconfigured) v5.1.1, Copyright (c) 2002-2016, by ionCube Ltd.

To enable this feature, add the following directive to your php.ini file: 

ic24.enable = 1

When you run the php -v command, you will see the following output if you do not have an access key installed:

PHP Fatal error:  IC24: ionCube24 is enabled but no access key is set. Please see the server setup instructions at ioncube24.com or set 'ic24.enable = 0' in the php.ini file to disable ionCube24 for now.
