Installed licensed FileRun using cPanel but get a bunch of characters on screen

    I would hazard a guess that it is because FileRun is encoded using the "ionCube Loader" (see ). You'll need to contact your web host to ask them to enable that loader (which they may not be able to do as it is incompatible with a rival product - Zend Guard - so if that is already being used on the server, it won't be able to be setup).

    If you do have root (WHM) access to the VPS, you can install the ionCube loader using Software->EasyApache4. Load your existing configuration, go to "PHP Extensions and select "php81-php-ioncube13"

    Hi rbairwell,

    Thank you! I appreciate the help here, worked a treat, I used EasyApache to install through WHM. This is purely a hobby for me so I don't know the ins and outs if things go south haha.
