What precisely is Zend Optimizer? How can it affect the overall performance of a PHP app?
Lots of licensed and some free script-driven applications have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widespread since it can be used to alter any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you'd like to employ any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites which need the tool generally perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.
