Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encoded code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is used widely since it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to work effectively on a web server after that is when an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you'd like to use any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites that need the tool can perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed faster.
