Many licensed and some free script-driven applications have encrypted program code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's used widely because it can be used to modify all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to run properly on a web server after that is when another tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you want 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. Also, sites which need the tool tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more quickly.
