Numerous licensed and some free script-driven applications have encoded code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's popular since 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 correctly on a web server after that is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you would like to employ any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites that require the tool can perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.
