IonCube Copy Protection

A few scripts in AShop V, are encoded using IonCube. IonCube encoding protects copyrighted source code from piracy. This is only used on scripts that affect the license check for AShop V. All other scripts are unencoded and can be modified. IonCube is not used at all in the free AShop GPL.

IonCube provides run time loaders for most operating systems and versions of PHP. The correct run time loader must be present or the loader must be added to PHP on the server in order for the compiled scripts to run. To find out if IonCube is available on your website or if it can be installed, contact your hosting provider or use the AShop V Pre-Installation Test script to check for it automatically.

AShop Pre-Installation Test
The pre-installation ashoptest.php script checks and reports the status of the server configuration as it relates to AShop. It also checks the operating system version and tries to automatically get the correct IonCube loader. The ashoptest.php script then checks to see if IonCube decryption is working.

IonCube Troubleshooting
Run ashoptest.php first to see if the AShop Software requirements are met on the server.

If all of the requirements are met and the IonCube decryption is still not working, you may need to install it manually by modifying the php.ini or php5.ini file for your site. Check with your hosting provider to find out if and how this can be done on your site. IonCube is a very common software these days and most hosting providers will know how to get it running on their servers.

If IonCube decryption used to work but suddenly has stopped working, then your hosting provider has most likely upgraded the version of PHP on their servers, which will require a corresponding upgrade of the IonCube loader.

You can always download the IonCube loader you need for free from
