Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is popular since it can be used to alter all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to work effectively on a web server after that is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you would like to employ any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites which require the instrument tend to perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.
