Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encrypted code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's widely used because it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run the right way on a web server after that is when an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. When you'd like to work with any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites which require the tool will perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
