How to Install ionCube Loader on Debian 9

IonCube is a PHP extension that can be used for decoding secured encrypted PHP files at runtime. The IonCube encoder is used by commercial PHP program vendors to protect applications and the loader, which we install in this tutorial, is required to run IonCube encoded files on your server. The IoncubeLoader is available free of charge. Ioncube loader increases your website loading speed and preventing others from stealing the source code by converting your PHP into byte-code.
