Ioncube Loader Problem


I am trying to install a plugin that uses Ioncube Loader but I can’t figure out how to install it. Can you point me in the right direction please? I found a topic about Ioncube but it doesn’t say how he managed to make it work.
Thank you for your time!

If I don’t know how to code in the least, or what most of that reference post means, what do I do to get ioncube to work?

I have successfully installed ioncube locally but when i push it to the live site it is not installed on the live server. Is there a way to make ioncube work on the a live production environment?

HI Derek
You need to talk to your web hosting company to inatall or activate ioncube. Sometimes ioncube is not installed by default.
