Using Zend Optimizer

You can use Zend Optimizer™, a free application, to decode your website's Zend files and enhance your PHP application's performance if you use PHP 5.2 or less. For more information, see View or change your PHP version.

Note: If you use PHP 5.3 or later, you must use Zend Guard Loader instead of Zend Optimizer. For more information, see Using Zend Guard Loader.

To use Zend Optimizer with our hosting accounts, you must disable APC. For more information, see Disabling APC on Your Hosting Account.

To enable Zend Optimizer on your hosting account, you must either modify or create a php5.ini file. The file you create or modify must include the following code in the first line of your file:

[Zend]
zend_optimizer.optimization_level=15
zend_extension_manager.optimizer=/usr/local/Zend/lib/Optimizer-3.3.3
zend_extension_manager.optimizer_ts=/usr/local/Zend/lib/Optimizer_TS-3.3.3
zend_extension=/usr/local/Zend/lib/Optimizer-3.3.3/ZendExtensionManager.so
zend_extension_ts=/usr/local/Zend/lib/Optimizer_TS-3.3.3/ZendExtensionManager_TS.so
Warning: Zend Optimizer might corrupt files encoded for Zend Guard Loader and PHP 5.3

Note: We recommend backing up your php5.ini file before modifying it.
