A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encoded program code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's commonly used as it can be used to alter all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to run the right way on a web server afterwards is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you wish to employ 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 website. Furthermore, sites which need the tool usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.
