Many licensed and some free script-driven applications have encoded program code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widespread because it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run correctly on a web server after that is when another tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you want to use any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites which need the instrument generally perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more rapidly.
