Many licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it is very popular due to the fact that it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run the right way on a web server after that is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you would like to work with any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites which need the tool will perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more quickly.
