Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is widespread as it can be used to change any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encrypted files to work effectively on a web server after that is when a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you want to work with any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites that need the tool tend to perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed quicker.
