Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encrypted program code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's popular since it can be used to modify all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to run correctly on a web server afterwards is when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you'd like to use any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, websites that require the instrument can perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed quicker.
