Learn just what Zend Optimizer is and in what ways it will change the performance of any PHP application.
Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's required to execute files encoded 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. In case you'd like to protect your custom script, for instance, you can take advantage of Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Countless pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to work effectively because their core code is usually not free to modify. Websites which use the tool are typically quicker because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
