Numerous licensed and some free script-driven applications have encoded code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it is widespread due to the fact that it can be used to modify all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to work the right way on a web server after that is when another tool called Zend Optimizer is present. If you'd like to use any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, sites which require the instrument usually perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed quicker.
