Plenty of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is commonly used because it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to work properly on a web server after that is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you'd like to employ any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, sites that require the tool generally perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
