Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's used widely due to the fact that it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encrypted files to work effectively on a web server afterwards is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is there. When you want to work with any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, sites that need the instrument usually perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed faster.
