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.
Trong hướng dẫn này, we will explain the installation of IonCube Loader on Debian 9 máy chủ.
- A server running Debian 9 with LAMP installed.
- A non-root user with sudo privileges.

Sau khi tải về xong, extract the downloaded file using the following command:
tar -xvzf ioncube_loaders_lin_x86-64.tar.gz
By default the files will be unzipped to a folder ioncube.
Bây giờ, change the directory to ioncube folder and run ls command to see all the extension:
You should see the various ioncube loader files corresponding to various php versions as below:
ioncube_loader_lin_4.1.so ioncube_loader_lin_5.0_ts.so ioncube_loader_lin_5.4.so ioncube_loader_lin_7.0_ts.so README.txt ioncube_loader_lin_4.2.so ioncube_loader_lin_5.1.so ioncube_loader_lin_5.4_ts.so ioncube_loader_lin_7.1.so USER-GUIDE.pdf ioncube_loader_lin_4.3.so ioncube_loader_lin_5.1_ts.so ioncube_loader_lin_5.5.so ioncube_loader_lin_7.1_ts.so USER-GUIDE.txt ioncube_loader_lin_4.3_ts.so ioncube_loader_lin_5.2.so ioncube_loader_lin_5.5_ts.so ioncube_loader_lin_7.2.so ioncube_loader_lin_4.4.so ioncube_loader_lin_5.2_ts.so ioncube_loader_lin_5.6.so ioncube_loader_lin_7.2_ts.so ioncube_loader_lin_4.4_ts.so ioncube_loader_lin_5.3.so ioncube_loader_lin_5.6_ts.so LICENSE.txt ioncube_loader_lin_5.0.so ioncube_loader_lin_5.3_ts.so ioncube_loader_lin_7.0.so loader-wizard.php

php -i | grep extension_dir
You should see the following output:
extension_dir => /usr/lib/php/20151012 => /usr/lib/php/20151012
Bây giờ, copy ioncube loader file to the PHP extension directory (/usr/lib/php/20151012) using the following command:
cp ioncube_loader_lin_7.0.so /usr/lib/php/20151012/
Tiếp theo, you will need to edit php.ini file and add path of the ioncube extension. You can do this with the following command:
