Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encrypted program code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is widespread due to the fact that it can be used to modify any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to work the right way on a web server after that is if one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. When you wish to use any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites which require the instrument can perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed quicker.
