Zend Guard needs Zend Server?

Postby muti3299 on Sun Jan 08, 2017 12:21 pm


I want to use Zend Guard but my question is, do I need to have Zend Server as well in order to use Zend Guard properly? or I can use Zend Guard without having Zend Server?
What are the pros and cons with having Zend Server + Zend Guard and just by having Zend Guard alone?

Thank you, Good day everyone.

Zend Guard requires Guard Loader PHP extension for runtime execution. This extension is part of Zend Server PHP extensions if you wish to use, or already using Zend Server upto version 8.5.6, with all its advantages (for development and production). Zend Server is the most tested PHP runtime for Zend Guard, naturally, but is not required as you can see in the Zend Guard system requirements. So the option to use or try out Zend Server exists and recommended, but not mandatory.
Hope this helps.
