A lot of licensed and some free script-driven apps have protected code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widely used as it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work effectively on a web server after that is when an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you wish to work with any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, sites which require the instrument will perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed quicker.
