Hi There,

Can I confirm that this is as intended with 10.2.1?

So the unencoded .php file is 19kb.

Filesize encoded with 10.2.0:
67kb

Filsize encoded with 10.2.1:
103kb

That's more than 5 times larger than the original file. I have only upgraded to 10.2.1 this week. Is there something wrong here or is this some new method to better protect .php files? The changelog didn't mention anything major happening with the way ioncube encodes files.

Because of this file size increase, my entire php project is coming out quite large. This has to affect loading times, does it not?

Thanks for any help!

Settings used:
- php 7.2
- encoder version 10.2 (latest)
- Dynamic Keys & Decoding: None
- Restrictions: License File
- Obfuscation: Line Numbers Only
- Customisation: preamble set to None
- Encoded file format: ASCII
- Optimisation level: Default
- Environment: empty
- Actions: empty

Hi,

That would certainly be unexpected if the encoding options are the same in both cases for 10.2.0 and 10.2.1.

Would you please create a support ticket about this at https://support.ioncube.com If you do not have a current support plan then please create the ticket in the "Sales" department. Please include your encoding options and a sample file encoded with the 10.2.0 and 10.2.1 encoders. The original source file would be useful too.
