Numerous licensed and some free script-driven applications have encrypted code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is used widely because it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to work correctly on a web server afterwards is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you want to work with any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your site. Also, sites that require the instrument can perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
