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.
