Numerous licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's commonly used as it can be used to modify all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server after that is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you want to work with any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, websites that need the tool will perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed quicker.
