Lots of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have protected code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such apps. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widespread as 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 work the right way on a web server after that is if another instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. When you'd like to employ any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Also, sites that require the instrument will perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more rapidly.
