A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have protected program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is commonly used due to the fact that it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to work correctly on a web server afterwards is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you'd like to work with any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites that need the tool usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed quicker.
