What exactly is Zend Optimizer? Just how can it affect the functionality of a PHP app?
Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you want to protect your custom-made script, for example, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Numerous pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to work properly since their core code is often not free to change. Internet sites that use the tool are usually speedier because their code is already optimized and precompiled.
