What exactly is Zend Optimizer? Just how can it affect the performance of a PHP application?
Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you can take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Various pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to work properly as their core code is usually not free to change. Websites that use the instrument are normally speedier because their code is already optimized and precompiled.
