What precisely is Zend Optimizer? How can it influence the functionality of a PHP app?
Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you'd like to protect your custom script, for instance, you'll be able to use Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A number of pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to function effectively since their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Sites that use the tool are often faster as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom cloud platform and you can use it whatever the cloud hosting
package that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all accounts and it'll take you just a few clicks to do that. Since we support numerous releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software instrument, so you don't need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, still if you're unsure how to proceed, you are able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support team and they'll activate the tool for you.
