Zend Optimizer is a handy tool that could enhance the functionality your PHP apps. Find out why and how to activate it.
Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's 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 copyright protected source code. When you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you can employ Zend Guard and your code will not 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 that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to function properly since their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Internet sites which use the tool are generally faster because their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
