Zend Optimizer is a helpful software instrument that can boost the overall performance your PHP apps. Learn why and how you can enable it.
Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you would like to protect your custom script, for instance, you are able to employ 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 blog. Numerous ready-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work correctly as their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Internet sites which use the instrument are typically quicker since their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
