Numerous licensed and some free script-driven apps have encrypted program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it's popular because it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is if a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you'd like to employ any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, sites which require the tool can perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more quickly.
