Numerous licensed and some free script-driven applications have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widely used due to the fact that it can be used to alter any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run properly on a web server subsequently is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is present. When you want to use any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites that require the instrument generally perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more quickly.
