Lots of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encrypted code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unwanted usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's used widely due to the fact that it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to work properly on a web server afterwards is when one more instrument 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 ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, sites which need the instrument tend to perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
