Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted program code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widely used as it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run correctly on a web server subsequently is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you want to use any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites which require the instrument generally perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more rapidly.
