A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files in order to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you obtain a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a website hosting account, a software tool called ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without this, you can't install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it will not function appropriately due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new web hosting account and you'd like to work with some paid web app. If you acquire a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added as the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
