Installing Zend Guard Loader
Created: Last updated:
Installing Zend Guard Loader is a simple process. You copy the module file into a directory add a few lines to the php configuration and reload your httpd web server configuration.
Because I already have a document explaining this steps for CentOS (most Linux instances for Amazon's AWS EC2 are based on CentOS/RedHat) I will link you to the document Zend Guard Loader on CentOS. The only thing missing is probably how to upload the module to the cloud. For that see the hint below.
Note that the parent webpage for the other document will have an overview to documents about Zend Guard. If you run into some troubles they will help you find and fix the problem.
Upload the module
The tricky part is probably uploading the module file to you Linux instance and there are several methods which, unfortunately, will not go into detail here. I assume you have to upload other docouments anyway and already found your solution. If you haven't found a way check out my document for how to Enable FTP in EC2. That should do the trick and give you all you need to upload other documents to your cloud server.
