Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encoded code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's commonly used as it can be used to change any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to work the right way on a web server after that is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. If you wish to employ any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites which need the instrument can perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.
