Many licensed and some free script-driven applications have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is very popular since it can be used to change any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run properly on a web server afterwards is if another instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. When you wish to work with any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. In addition, sites that need the instrument usually perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more quickly.
