What precisely is Zend Optimizer? How will it affect the performance of a PHP application?
A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encoded program code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's very popular since it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to work properly on a web server after that is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is present. When you want to employ any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites that require the instrument can perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed quicker.
