Step 3: Prerequisite

GoClixy requires PHP v7.2, so change the PHP version in your cPanel accordingly. You can also contact your Hosting Provider for the PHP Version change.

GoClixy core files are encoded using ioncube loader, your server must have PHP ioncube-loader extension installed to run the application.

cPanel - How to check if IonCube Loader is installed on your Hosting Server?

  • Login to your cPanel.
  • In the Software/Services section of the cPanel home screen, click Select PHP Version.
  • Check the ioncube_loader extension checkbox to enable it for the current PHP version. Note: you must have the latest version of ioncube_loader extension on your server, enabling the ioncube_loader_4 will not work.

An alternate way to find if IonCube Loader is installed on your Hosting Server?

You can easily figure out if IonCube is running by looking at the information from PHP info. To check this you need to create a PHP file (e.g. phpinfo.php) with the content as follows:

<?php 
phpinfo(); 
?>
  • Visit your phpinfo.php file in a browser: http(s)://YOUR DOMAIN NAME/phpinfo.php
  • Check which version of the ionCube loader package is installed on your server by inspecting the first and the Additional Modules section of the output of the phpinfo.php file you just added.

  • Extract the loader-wizard.php file from the zip archive.

  • Upload it on your server via FTP or cPanel File Manager.

  • Visit the loader-wizard.php file in a browser: http(s)://YOUR DOMAIN NAME/loader-wizard.php and follow the instructions.

IMPORTANT: FOR SECURITY REASONS, THE APPLICATION, GOCLIXY, VENDOR, .HTACCESS AND ROBOTS.TXT FOLDERS/FILES MUST BE PLACED ABOVE WEBROOT OR PUBLIC_HTML SO THAT THEY CANNOT BE DIRECTLY ACCESSED VIA A BROWSER. BY DEFAULT, .HTACCESS FILES ARE INCLUDED IN EACH FOLDER TO PREVENT DIRECT ACCESS, BUT IT IS BEST TO REMOVE THEM FROM PUBLIC ACCESS FULLY IN CASE THE WEB SERVER CONFIGURATION CHANGES.
