Lots of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted program code, which 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 purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's popular as it can be used to alter any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run correctly on a web server afterwards is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you would like to work with any kind of paid web software requiring 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 instrument can perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed faster.
