Zend Optimizer is a handy tool which could improve the performance your PHP applications. Find out why and how you can enable it.
Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you can take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A number of ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate correctly because their core code is generally not free to change. Sites that use the instrument are often faster as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
