Learn what exactly Zend Optimizer is and just how it will alter the overall performance of a PHP app.
Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations which create paid script apps, so in case you get such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
