Learn what Zend Optimizer is and how it will alter the performance of any PHP app.
Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you wish to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you're able to employ Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A large number of ready-made script-driven applications, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to function correctly since their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Internet sites which use the tool are often speedier since their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
