Hello Xampp members,

I put an offline version of my webshop local on my PC for testing.
Prestashop is working but when I try to login in to the admin I get the following error:

Site error: the file C:\xampp\htdocs\modules\tpvtienda\classes\Movimientos.php requires the ionCube PHP Loader ioncube_loader_win_5.6.dll to be installed by the website operator. If you are the website operator please use the ionCube Loader Wizard to assist with installation.

Is this just for information or do you have a specific question?

Ioncube is a third party component, so we cannot assist you installing it.
If you have problems installing Ioncube please search for the Ioncube installation documentation or ask at a Ioncube support channel.

best wishes,
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

download a version of ioncube loader on
choose just 1 package

Open the zip file and place the ioncube_loader_win_7.0.dll in your [xampp install folder]-> /php -> /ext
(basically the folder where all php extensions are located like opcache.dll, php_ldap.dll)

once you placed the file there open your php.ini file and add the this line

to Check if you IonCube is Loaded on your local server
open the same zip file where you got the dll files. there should be a file named loader-wizard.php
pull or place that on your localhost folder and access it on http://locahost/loader-wizard.php or any location you placed it

just a point to consider: ioncube is still not compatible with PHP version 7.1.1 so you have to downgrade to version 7 if you want to use it
