Lots of licensed and some free script-driven applications have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's very popular since it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run effectively on a web server after that is if another instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. When you wish to use any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. In addition, websites which need the instrument will perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more rapidly.
