What exactly is Zend Optimizer? Just how can it affect the effectiveness of a PHP app?
Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you would like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you can use Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Lots of pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function correctly since their core code is generally not free to change. Websites that use the tool are often quicker because their code is already optimized and precompiled.
