Dear Sir, Thanks! Its working now:

sudo nano /etc/php/7.0/cli/conf.d/00-ioncube.ini and added: zend_extension = “/usr/lib/php/20151012/”

sudo systemctl restart nginx

sudo systemctl restart php7.0-fpm.service

I tried to copy cp /etc/php/7.0/cli/conf.d cp: cannot create regular file ‘/etc/php/7.0/cli/conf.d/’: Permission denied

@webrabin Where did you add the ionCube loader in PHP? You need to add the loader to /etc/php/7.0/cli/conf.d/ as well, for it to work in cronjobs and other CLI environments.
