Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have protected code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's very popular due to the fact that it can be used to modify 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 after that is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is available. If you want to employ any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites that need the tool will perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.
