Many licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unwanted usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's used widely due to the fact that it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run efficiently on a web server subsequently is if one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you'd like to use any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites which need the tool can perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed quicker.
