    Just a quick enquiry about encryption types? if i was writing a CMS or a Website Manager or something, and i want all the non-majorly-important files to be encrypted, what would be the best way? Hashing is useless, and other encryption methods, like replacement of characters or translation encryption takes too much computing power. Any compromise?

    If the files are not important, why encrypt them?

    What format are the files in? Are they PHP files?

    Instead of encryption, what about obfuscating them? There are plenty of these around the web.
