Many licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encrypted program code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's very popular because it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to work correctly on a web server afterwards is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. When you would like to use any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, websites that require the instrument will perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed quicker.

When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for each of them.
