Learn what Zend Optimizer is and how it will impact the overall performance of a PHP app.
Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you want to protect your custom-made script, for example, you can 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 website. Countless pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to function effectively as their core code is usually not free to modify. Sites which use the instrument are normally quicker because their code is already optimized and precompiled.
