Analysis of your system configuration shows:
PHP Version 4.3.3
Operating System Linux
Threaded PHP No
php.ini file /usr/local/lib/php.ini
Required Loader ioncube_loader_lin_4.3.so
5. Now lets move the iconcube directory to a permanent location:
cd ..
mv ioncube /usr/local
6. Now that you know the location of php.ini you need to edit it.
Vi  /usr/local/lib/php.ini
Now find where other zend extentions are in the file.
zend_extension
Paste in your new line for ioncube loader
zend_extension = /usr/local/ioncube/ioncube_loader_lin_4.3.so
7. Save the changes
8. Restart the web server to take effect.
/etc/init.d/httpd restart
Success! You should now see a section in your PHP Info page that says:
