here a little instruction.

copy the ZendOptimizerPlus.so from ZendServer CE 5.3 to /your/own/path/ZendOptimizerPlus.so

and copy the following code in your php.ini:
Nightchiller,

Is that php 5.3 workaround for optimizer still working for you?

I looked through the code and noticed different paths that point to Server CE. Do you have Zend Server CE running too?

Regards,
Mike

We've released support for PHP 5.3 so I'd use the official support at this time.

Is there any way to run pre-5.3.x encoded files on PHP 5.3.x install other than re-encoding them? I do not own the un-encoded source files and the author of the script is not available. This means I cannot update to PHP 5.3.x if there is no workaround. Most aggravating.

What is 5.3.3RC1? Is it Zend Optimizer that supports PHP 5.3? If yes, where can I download it? At the current moment I am using this
viewtopic.php?f=57&t=1365&start=80#p22073 (loaded using zend_extension=/etc/php5/ZendGuardLoader.so) and that throws the following error:
Fatal error: Incompatible file format: The encoded file has format major ID 1, whereas the Loader expects 4 in ... on line 0

Files to runon PHP 5.3 must be re-encoded from the original source for 5.3. 5.2 encoded files will not run.

the 1 year licence of zend guard says that files encoded during the 1 year period will continue to work later... and I need to run those files on php5.3 servers. and I have no more a licence to re-encode the files and I do not want to pay for that... it is the zend job to provide us an upward compatibility for programs encoded with older versions. as it has always be done before....
Same issue here for a very long time, this is a very aggravating problem. Software we paid for is no longer available nor supported, the company doesnt even exist anymore and the staff involved is MIA. The software won't run on php 5.3 due to Zend; zend doesnt offer any solution either.

The only ~fixI see is trying to find and -pay- a zend decoding service to obtain php source files and hope it might work.

Needless to say, I won't ever be picking any zend encoded software again if there's a version available for ionCube or similar.

Has there been any traction on when ZO+ will be available for PHP 5.3?

Hi

I wish to conclude (lock) this topic, since some people post diverted issues and some are still trying to find out when Optimizer will be built for PHP 5.3.

Zend Loader, which is provided as standalone for PHP 5.3 and as embedded (optional) component in Zend Server, is the newer Guard runtime for Zend Guard encoded PHP scripts. You can download runtime for Guard and Zend Server from the following download pages:
http://www.zend.com/downloads/

Hope this helps anyone who is still looking in this topic to find out what to install for Zend Guard encoded scripts in PHP 5.3 runtime.

Thank you.
