Cross server compatibility

Post by zend_install » Mon Nov 26, 2012 6:11 pm


I've encoded a project using Zend Guard on one server and this server runs the code fine. However, if I copy across the same code to another server, the obsfucated code does not run. It seems as though Zend Guard only allows me to run encrypted code on the server it was encrypted on.

I've tried using the command line versions of the ZG too but the same result. I'm encoding a Symfony 1.4 app.

Can anyone help?

First start by comparing the PHP runtime on the encoding and target servers, output of phpinfo() on two browser tabs might help for quick comparison.
Hint: Guard Loader should appear there...

Next - check PHP error log while loading the code in the browser.

Please report back with any result and if you found the problem.
