Learn what precisely Zend Optimizer is and in what ways it can alter the entire performance of any PHP application.
Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you need to protect your custom-written script, for example, you will be able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A large number of pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function efficiently because their core code is usually not free to change. Websites that use the tool are generally speedier because their code is already optimized and precompiled.
