Learn what exactly Zend Optimizer is and how it will affect the entire performance of any PHP application.
Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application which 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 many organizations that create paid script apps, so in case you purchase such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
