Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unwanted usage of such apps. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's popular due to the fact that it can be used to modify all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to run efficiently on a web server subsequently is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you wish to employ any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, sites that require the tool tend to perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed quicker.
