Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have protected program code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widespread because it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encoded files to work properly on a web server subsequently is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. When you'd like to work with any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites that require the tool can perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.
