A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encoded code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widespread since it can be used to alter any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run correctly on a web server after that is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you'd like to work with any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. Also, sites which need the instrument tend to perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more rapidly.
