Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encoded program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's commonly used as it can be used to change any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to work the right way on a web server subsequently is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you'd like to work with any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, websites which need the tool generally perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed quicker.
