Zend Guard

Recommended Posts

Not entirely sure if this is the right place for this to go but anyway ...

 

Firstly how reliable is Zend Guard at protecting your PHP? Is it "easily" bypassed/hacked/etc?

 

And secondly if the hosting company does not have Zend Guard Loader does bundling Zend Guard Loader into the application help? (http://www.zend.com/en/products/guard/faq)

 

Thanks in advance

If someone gains root access to your server your source code can be stolen (and worse, obviously), regardless of whether it has been "compiled" with Zend Guard/Ioncube/those things.

 

Your better off spending time making sure your server is secure than messing around encoding your scripts with tools like Zend Guard.

codingmasterRS,

 

Did you find any info on bundling zend loader with an application? I'm having a lot of problems finding info on it.

 

My web application has been compiled with php 5.2 and therefore uses zend optimizer... now that some hosts are finally upgrading to php 5.3 I'll need to get everything working with zend loader instead of optimizer. Hoping you can help me out with your research if it was successful.
