Installing the SourceGuardian PHP Extension on Debian 10 "Buster" with PHP 7.3

Editions: ViMP Light, ViMP Ultimate [Standard], ViMP Corporate Campus or ViMP Corporate Enterprise
Versions: 4.0.0+

Installations of ViMP Light, ViMP Ultimate [Standard], ViMP Corporate Campus or ViMP Corporate Enterprise require the PHP extension SourceGuardian.

This article explains the installation of the extension for Debian 9 "Stretch" 64-bit, further information on the usage can be found here.

If you have a 32-bit system (e.g. i686), just change the wget command, that downloads the loader. You find an overview of all loaders on the SourceGuardian-website.

First create a temporary folder "loader" at /usr/src/:

mkdir /usr/src/loader
cd /usr/src/loader

Download the sourceguardian package (64-bit here) directly into the new folder:

wget http://www.sourceguardian.com/loaders/download/loaders.linux-x86_64.tar.gz

Now extract the file:

tar xzf loaders.linux-x86_64.tar.gz

Copy the file that meets your PHP version like this:

cp ixed.7.3.lin /usr/lib/php/20180731/

"ts" in the filenames means "Thread Safety". If "Thread Safety" is enabled (usually it isn't), copy the file ixed.5.6ts.lin instead.

Now create the sourceguardian configuration file.

cd /etc/php/7.3/mods-available/
touch sourceguardian
joe sourceguardian.ini

Enter the following lines into the file:


and save it.

Activate the PHP extension with the command:

phpenmod sourceguardian

The command has no output for errors or success.

Restart Apache:

service apache2 stop
service apache2 start

Now the extension is installed for Apache2 and CLI and ViMP will be decrypted.
