Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have protected program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's very popular due to the fact that it can be used to modify any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run efficiently on a web server after that is if another instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you'd like to use any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites that require the instrument generally perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed faster.
