Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encrypted code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's used widely due to the fact that it can be used to change any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to work effectively on a web server after that is when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you would like to employ any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites which need the instrument tend to perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.
