IonCube Loader is an instrument, that's required to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application used to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering and / or illegal usage. Numerous script-driven applications, especially online forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you acquire a script and you notice that ionCube is among the web hosting environment requirements, you need to make sure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it's not that hard to set it up when you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment should be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.
