IonCube Loader Installation
A Loader file is required to read PHP scripts encoded with the ionCube Encoder. There are two ways to use this file, requiring different installation methods: run-time Loading and via the php.ini file.
If you don't know which method is best for your installation, that's alright. We've included everything you need with the IonCube Loader package you can download from the customer area when you purchase any of our modules.
Simply download the zip archive to your computer and extract it locally. The files that are extracted you will need to upload them via FTP to the root of your website in a directory called `ioncube`. Within the extracted files you will notice that there is a PHP install wizard that will step you through the process of getting IonCube Loaders working in your web hosting environment.
Once the files are uploaded to your website, you will need to run the install wizard by visiting it on your computer browser (ex. http://www.mydomain.com/ioncube/loader-wizard.php). The simple install wizard will layout which option will be best with your hosting provider and it will show you exactly what you need to do; to get it working correctly. It will even verify and test the installation once you follow the required steps.
If you do run into any problems with the installation of the loader or our module; contact us via our help desk. We will assist you with everything you need to get up and working at no cost to you.
