Hello,

I want to encode few php files which have secure information like Database details , connection path etc etc.

i was using ion Cube for encoding those files but i recently found it can be decode as well.

Can any one suggest any other software which i can use for encoding , so once it encode no one can decode it.

I'm having LAMP environment.

Thanks in Advance !!!

That isn't possible, sorry. all you can do is make the source more obscure, you can't prevent decryption - if the LAMP engines can decrypt it, then so can an attacker. Even if you compile your scripts down to an executable with all debugging information removed,  a skilled hacker can reverse-engineer the binary and get out the string, or simply run it under a test harness and see what data it sends where.
