What is Zend Optimizer?
Zend Optimizer is configured to work on any Bluehost server. To ensure it works properly for your account, you need to enable the "zend_extension" option in your php.ini in all folders where the scripts are that need it. You can enable this using the "PHP Configuration" option in cPanel. Follow the steps in the PHP Config article to install the default php.ini file to your account.
My Error Log gives an error that looks like "Zend Optimizer for PHP x.x.x Cannot Be Found" or similar -- How do I Confirm Zend Optimizer is configured properly?
This may be visible directly on the website, or in your PHP error logs, or both. Zend Optimizer is installed on the server and just needs to be enabled in the php.ini file. You may need to install the default php.ini file as well.
If you are still seeing the error, please copy down the path to the script seeing issues; then, using either File Manager or FTP or Bash (terminal), verify the following:
- The directory has a php.ini file
- The php.ini file has no capitalizations in the filename and has permissions of 440 or greater.
- The php.ini is newly created to rule out possible PHP version mismatches.
