Learn what precisely Zend Optimizer is and just how it can affect the performance of a PHP application.
Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you would like to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you'll be able to employ Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Various ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work effectively because their core code is often not free to modify. Internet sites that use the tool are usually quicker because their code is already optimized and precompiled.
