Zend Optimizer is a handy software tool that can boost the performance your PHP applications. Find out why and how you can activate it.
Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is required 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 illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you would like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you're able to employ Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Many pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function effectively because their core code is often not free to change. Sites which use the tool are normally faster since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
