Warning: dl ... Temporary module name should contain only filename


Q: When I attempt to install or use iPanel/iHost/iAds, the following error is displayed:

Warning: dl() [function.dl]: Temporary module name should contain only filename

What does this mean, and how do I correct it?

Q: This is the result of a change the PHP developers made in PHP v5.2.5, which prevents the ionCube loaders from working properly unless they are installed in a central location by a systems administrator on your server.

Please see the following forum article on the ionCube web site for more information:


In short, your systems administrator will need to install the ionCube loaders in your system's main PHP extension directory in order to resolve this problem -- not just for iPanel/iHost/iAds, but for any script that requires ionCube encoding.
