Lots of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have protected program code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software instruments used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widespread because it can be used to alter any type of 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 if one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you would like to use any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites that need the tool usually perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed faster.
