Many licensed and some free script-driven apps have encrypted program code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is used widely because it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to run effectively on a web server after that is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you want to employ any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites which require the tool generally perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed quicker.
