Lots of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encrypted code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widely used as it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is if one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. When you want to work with any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites which require the instrument will perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.
