Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded program code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it's used widely as it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is when an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is available. If you would like to employ any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites that require the instrument usually perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more quickly.
