Web Hosting Requirements – Ioncube and PHP

Requirements

Our requirements are fairly simple.

1. You need a hosting service that supports WordPress.

2. You need PHP 7.0 or newer.

If you have any questions about whether your host can support Memberium, you can download our plugin from this site. Once you install the plugin, it will tell you if your PHP version doesn’t meet our requirements.

Upgrading your PHP

Memberium requires PHP v7.0 or greater to run. Some hosting services will let you choose your PHP version in your cPanel or configuration panel. Other hosts require you to request that they do it. Please contact your web host to have your PHP upgraded.

As of the time of this writing, PHP 7.1 and earlier are no longer supported by the PHP development team. We don’t require 7.2, but PHP older than 7.2 is no longer getting bugfixes/updates.

PHP versions that are no longer supported will be missing security fixes, bug fixes and performance enhancements that would speed up your site.

IonCube

In past releases of Memberium, we required the IonCube Loader PHP extension be installed. In our latest releases, Memberium works without IonCube. This opens up more selection in terms of where you can host a Memberium powered membership site. If you have any questions, reach out to our support team.

The Silent Thief Lurking in Your Business

There are as many ways to become successful as there are markets and audiences. The trick is to take informed and decisive and principled action. You don’t need to know everything, nobody is advocating shooting blindly. Evolve and refine your priorities and strategies. Change it if you must, but don’t get caught in the trap of chasing the strategy du jour. Strategies, unlike tactics take time to bear fruit, so be patient and consistent in your actions. Priorities like strategies should be part of your north star and should guide your decisions, not be guided by the decisions of the day.
