Learn just what Zend Optimizer is and also how it can impact the general performance of a PHP app.
Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you want to protect your custom-made script, for example, you're able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Numerous ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate correctly because their core code is often not free to modify. Sites which use the tool are normally quicker because their code is already optimized and precompiled.
