A lot of licensed and some free script-driven applications have protected code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's commonly used since it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run effectively on a web server after that is when an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you wish to work with any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. In addition, websites that need the instrument will perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed quicker.
