    I installed Softaculous so I thought I would post this. If I have any mistakes please let me know. Hope this helps!!!
    For 64Bit x86_64 Linux:

    cd /tmp
    tar xfz ioncube_loaders_lin_x86-64.

    For 32Bit i386 Linux:

    cd /tmp
    tar xfz ioncube_loaders_lin_x86.tar.gz

    php -v


    php -i | grep extension_dir

    extension_dir => /usr/lib/php/20151012 => /usr/lib/php/20151012

    cp /tmp/ioncube/ /usr/lib/php/20151012

    zend_extension = /usr/lib/php/20151012/

    Apache mod_php

    nano /etc/php/7.0/apache2/php.ini

    Command line PHP (CLI)

    nano /etc/php/7.0/cli/php.ini

    PHP CGI (used for CGI and Fast_CGI modes)

    nano /etc/php/7.0/cgi/php.ini

    and add "zend_extension = /usr/lib/php/20151012/" as the first line in the file(s).

    Installing Softaculous in ISPConfig

    Create a remote user in Ispconfig 3.1

    Note: Before starting the installation make sure ionCube Loaders are enabled. Otherwise you will not be able to Install Softaculous. The ionCube Loaders can be downloaded at the ionCube Downloads page.
    Also Softaculous will not work if suHOSIN is enabled in your PHP

    Now SSH to your server and enter following commands :

    wget -N
    chmod 755

    Note : ./ should be executed as root. So for ubuntu users add sudo before ./

    The Installer will start showing the Installation Processes and when done will indicate the same. NOTE: Scripts will be downloaded during this process. The Download Activity will also be shown on the screen.

    If the installation was successful you can visit the Softaculous panel after logging into the ISPConfig panel :

    Common Issue

    Blank Page is displayed when Softaculous is accessed.

    Problem : PHP Extension mysql and is not loaded by Softaculous

    Solution: Append the following lines in /usr/local/softaculous/php.ini

    Also create the directory /usr/local/softaculous/conf and create the file /usr/local/softaculous/conf/custom.ini with the same contents above. So when Softaculous is upgraded to newer version, it will check for php options added by user in custom.ini and will append the contents in new /usr/local/softaculous/php.ini
    Note: If mysqlnd is enabled on your server, add it at the top of the above extensions list in php.ini file as:
