Learn precisely what Zend Optimizer is and just how it can affect the performance of a PHP application.
Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous organizations which make paid script applications, so in case you obtain such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
