Lots of licensed and some free script-driven apps have protected code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is used widely due to the fact that it can be used to modify all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work properly on a web server subsequently is if a second tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you want to employ any type of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites which require the tool tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more quickly.
