Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widespread due to the fact that 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 when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you'd like to work with any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites which require the tool generally perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.
