IonCube Loader Installation
Posted by VisiChat Hosting on 17 February 2015 11:49 AM

The ionCube Loader comes with its own PHP installation Wizard. This script comes with all packages available from the ionCube website and as a standalone tool in a separate archive, available on the loaders download page. The Wizard script will help you install the necessary package on your server and it is the recommended way to do it. However, ionCube also provides alternative installation instructions for specific deployment scenarios, linked below.

Downloading ionCube

Before you proceed with the installation, you must first download the correct ionCube Loader binary package. The full list of available download options can be found by following the link below.

Please select and download the version that fits your operating system. ionCube Loader is available for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. For Windows operating systems, you should also be mindful of the version of the Visual C++ runtime the library was compiled with (VC6, VC9, etc).

On Windows operating systems you can also opt to download the binary installer, which will make the installation easier. For all other platforms, please get the archived package of the type you prefer - they all contain the same files. If your PHP installation is threaded, please get the threaded version of the library.

Installing ionCube

Please extract the version of the library compatible with your PHP installation and its associated files to a convenient location. Then follow the installation guide below. Test your library is being loaded correctly before moving on by using the example test in the guide.
