IonCube Loader is an instrument, which is necessary to run files which are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app employed to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering and / or illegal use. Plenty of script-driven applications, especially discussion forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that if you acquire a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the hosting environment prerequisites, you have to ensure that your website hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it is not that hard to set it up if you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all clients on the server shall be affected.
