Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is very popular as it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to work properly on a web server after that is when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you'd like to work with any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, sites which need the tool tend to perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more quickly.
