Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encrypted program code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's very popular since it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work the right way on a web server after that is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you wish to use any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is 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 is executed quicker.
