Zend Optimizer is a useful instrument which could boost the performance your PHP applications. Learn why and how you can enable it.
Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you need to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to use 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 blog. Various pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work efficiently because their core code is generally not free to modify. Sites which use the instrument are often speedier as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
