Plenty of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected program code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widely used as it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work efficiently on a web server subsequently is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is present. If you would like to employ any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, websites that require the instrument can perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
