Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you obtain a paid script and you intend to install it in a web hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without having it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it will not operate effectively for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a new web hosting account and you would like to work with some paid web application. If you acquire a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added because the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
