A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have protected code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's very popular because it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you want to work with any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites which require the instrument usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more rapidly.
