Wondering if you ever installed the ioncube loader in the LAMP stack?  I'm hoping to do the same, any guidance would be appreciated.  Thanks!

I just googled "install ioncube loader debian wheezy" (because TurnKey Linux v13 is essentially Debian Wheezy under the hood) and plenty of the results look pretty promising:

Install Ioncube Loader For All PHP Modes (CLI, CGI, FCGI And FPM) On Debian Wheezy - on the well respected 'HowToForge' site.
This (the first result) at a glance looks like it should do the trick. It's a (relatively) recent article and appears to pretty much spell it out, although I note that it doesn't include installing some things (which may be necessary depending on exactly what you are trying to achieve e.g. php5-fpm, php5-cli). Having said that, what's needed should be fairly self explanatory and a simple 'apt-get install' should fix it. It may be necessary to tweak the version (and architecture) of the Ioncube Loader too (there is possibly a newer version now and you may be using a 32 bit server). Also note, if you can't work out the vi/vim text editor then replace 'vi' with 'nano' on the instructions (IMO nano is much more intuitive for the 'average Joe')

There are plenty of other promising looking results though and anything you don't understand should be easily resolved with a little more googling...

Good luck and post back and let us know how it goes... If you find something helpful, perhaps share it to help others...

Of course!  I should have started with some research.  Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.  I'll keep you posted on my progress.

And if you get stuck, please feel free to ask here. I can't guarantee that I will have the answer, but I'll have a go. And if I do say so myself, I have ninja googlefu skills! :)
