    Question PHP encoding

    Hello,

    I would like to know alternatives of php encoders than Ioncube and Zend (software please).

    I have found some but I would like to know your opinion about what software you use for encoding your php files.

    One example:

    Thank you all

    I wouldn't even consider something other than Zend and IonCube, because your customers need to set up the decoders, and requiring them to install some obscure program just to get your program to run is going to reduce sales.

    Zend and IonCube are common enough that many hosts have the Zend decoder installed on their servers already, or are willing to set either up on request for free.

    Thank you Dan, I don't want to sell anything.
    It's for some apps and for a Ajax CMS, this applications will work only in my servers.

    But I agreed with you, but could be Encoders that don't need to install the decoder on server? I believe that IonEncoder just needs the files in the same path of php application, or am I wrong?

    Why encode your own code? Are you afraid you'll see it and steal it from yourself?

    Since I work with some outside developers I want to give them access to the server for testings but not to mess or steal the rest of the code.

    I update my message before, please read. Thank you Dan.

    turck mmcache is a free alternative.

    Turck MMCache is a free open source PHP accelerator, optimizer, encoder and dynamic content cache for PHP.

    LOL, nice one Dan. Perhaps he's like me? So afraid of seeing my own badly written code - I need to be protected from it - otherwise I spend my entire life refactoring stuff - despite the fact that has worked perfectly well for years and years...
