Installing ioncube locally on windows

Posted by Damodar Bashyal on June 04, 2012


I am currently working in new office for few weeks and I am using their laptop to upgrade their old community magento version to latest magento enterprise version. They have almost $3 million sales, so the data is huge to do import/export. We heard Unirgy's uRapidFlow extension is quite good for large import/export. So, we purchased the module but it required ioncube.

We followed the documentation to install ioncube but no matter what we do, we couldn't get success on installing it. We were constantly getting this error "Failed loading C:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.2.22\bin\ioncube\ioncube_loader_win_5.4.dll"


How to configure localhost (wamp/xampp/etc) to send emails locally?

It's so frustrating when you can't use your localhost to send or test emails. Well it's no more frustrating, thanks to good guys from toolhip. They have created a mail server tool and is available for free. We can now use it to test our contact us form or any other pages that are configured to send emails, locally before moving them to staging or development server.
