Hi Experts

I'm planning to distribute  PHP component's site.
So, if one decides to download it, it could be installed at a preferred web provider and then been used.
Is it possible for PHP to generate DLL(s) or other way that assures code confidenciality ?
(in other words someone could obtain the components and install at web provider but without know the script codes ?)

Thanks in advance.

You should use Zend or Ioncube for that.

So as I see PHP hasn't a native recourse to do that. A 3.rd part purchase product is needed ?

Yes, although you can sue some of free onlinesolutions to obfuscate PHP code.

If you dont have budget for the start use free, otherwise Zend or IONCube is recommended.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
