Lots of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encrypt their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you buy a paid script and you want to set it up in a web hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without having it, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it won't work effectively for the reason that most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to work with some paid web application. If you obtain a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
