Zend Optimizer is a helpful software instrument that can improve the functionality your PHP applications. Learn why and how to enable it.
Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A lot of pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function properly because their core code is usually not free to modify. Websites that use the instrument are generally faster since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
