Is ionCube Encoder/Loader supported?
We support ionCube Encoder/Loader.
Companies can protect the PHP source code of their applications. ionCube Encoder protects the code through an advanced encoding technology. This software is billable and needs to be purchased and used by the customer (client side).
ionCube Loader can run encoded PHP files by using ionCube Encoder.
ionCube Loader can be installed in 2 ways: http://www.ioncube.com/loader_installation.php
Runtime-installation: to this end the function enable_dl needs to be set on ON in the server wide PHP.INI, and because of possible security holes we won’t do this globally.
Manual installation: it is possible to use ionCube Loader on a shared Linux package, but to this end:
- the ionCube loader files need to be downloaded to a directory /var/www/site.tld/site.tld/wwwroot/ioncube
- the extension needs to be activated by us through a custom php.ini (which thus requires a manual action = 2 service credits) through: zend_extension = /var/www/site.tld/site.tld/wwwroot/ioncube/ioncube_loader_lin_X.Y.so
