Lots of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's popular due to the fact that it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run properly on a web server after that is when another tool called Zend Optimizer is present. When you wish to employ any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites that need the tool tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more rapidly.
