Many licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected program code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's popular as it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run efficiently on a web server after that is when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you want to work with any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites which need the instrument can perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.
