What exactly is Zend Optimizer? Just how can it influence the general performance of a PHP application?
Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you need to protect your custom script, for example, you can employ Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. A number of ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to work effectively as their core code is generally not free to change. Sites which use the instrument are typically speedier since their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
