Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded program code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is popular since it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to run correctly on a web server after that is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you want to use any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. In addition, websites which need the instrument can perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed quicker.
