A lot of licensed and some free script-driven apps have protected program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unwanted usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is very popular as it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to run correctly on a web server after that is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you would like to employ any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites that require the tool can perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
