Many licensed and some free script-driven apps have encrypted program code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's widely used because it can be used to alter any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to run correctly on a web server afterwards is when an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you would like to employ any paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites which require the tool generally perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.
