Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encrypted code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widespread due to the fact that it can be used to alter all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encoded files to run correctly on a web server afterwards is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you wish to employ any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, sites that require the tool usually perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
