For WampServer the Loader is a PHP engine extension, so should be referenced with
a zend_extension line in a php.ini file.

The Loader must be for the correct operating system, match the
PHP version, and for whether PHP is built as Thread-Safe (TS).

Download Ioncube Windows VC15 (64 bits) or Windows VC15 (32 bits).

Exemple for PHP 7.3.12 :

Unpack Loader "ioncube_loader_win_7.3.dll" to E:\wamp64\bin\php\php7.3.12\zend_ext\ioncube_loader_win_7.3.dll

Search in phpForApache.ini:

; opcache documentation []



Restart wampServer two times.

Check a phpinfo page Section "ionCube Loader".

Thanks -

I found the below video very useful in how to use the loader-wizard.php and voila! Just managed to get it working.

I'll review you suggestion after I stop celebrating :-)
