Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encrypted program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's used widely as it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run effectively on a web server after that is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is present. When you would like to use any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. In addition, websites which require the instrument usually perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more rapidly.
