Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's commonly used as it can be used to alter all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run correctly on a web server after that is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is present. If you'd like to work with any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, sites that need the tool will perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed quicker.
