Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encrypted program code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is very popular because it can be used to alter all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work properly on a web server subsequently is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is available. If you'd like to work with any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites which need the instrument can perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.
