What precisely is Zend Optimizer? Just how can it affect the general performance of a PHP app?
Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you wish to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you will be able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A lot of ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to operate properly since their core code is generally not free to change. Internet sites which use the tool are typically faster since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
