Learn exactly what Zend Optimizer is and how it might affect the performance of a PHP application.
Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of organizations which create paid script applications, so if you buy such an application for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
