Many licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is used widely since it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to run properly on a web server afterwards is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you would like to employ any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites that need the instrument generally perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more quickly.
