Numerous licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unwanted usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's widespread because it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the protected files to work properly on a web server subsequently is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is present. If you want to use any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites that require the instrument generally perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.
