Learn just what exactly Zend Optimizer is and just how it might affect the performance of a PHP app.
Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you're able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Countless ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function efficiently because their core code is usually not free to modify. Internet sites which use the instrument are often quicker since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
