A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it is widely used due to the fact that it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to work efficiently on a web server after that is when another tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you want to work with any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. In addition, websites that need the instrument will perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
