What is the Ioncube Loader?

For evaluation purpose and some old versions of our products we use the ionCube PHP Encoder to protect the source code. The PHP code will get pre-compiled and encrypted and a separate PHP module is required to load it: The ionCube Loader. On the most servers this module is pre-installed and no additional action is needed.

If you need to install a loader just download it from here for free. Additionally we recommend to use the Loader Wizard, which will guides you to the installation.
