Is there a way to encrypt or enclose my code on my Linux server after deployment? I know Zend does some kind of encryption, right? Is that what people use? Is this even possible? How do I go about keeping my code secure online?

You are right, you can use Zend Encoder, Ion Cube or something like Source Guardian to encrypt your source code.

Its not really needed unless you are giving away your code and dont want people to steal it though.

What is it about your server that you think its insecure?

No, you can use you first method and not fill the memory with duplicate data. The only concern here is to validate it before using, and if you copy it to another variable, you need to do same on it also.

It's just a warning to show that there is no password for the default user root. If you want to set password for root:

  1. Open phpmyadmin interface
  2. Click "Users" tab
  3. Select user "root"
  4. Edit Privileges
  5. Change password

Very few things in a program are truly novel. Almost everything that you are likely to put into your code, someone else could invent on their own. Generally more easily than they could learn it by reading your code. Reading code is harder than writing it, and most programmers don't really like doing it anyway.

So it's much more likely that they will look at your app and think "I could do that", then "That's cool, I'm gonna read that code and then copy it!". Even if they understand it, you will still own the copyright, you still get to market first.

I recommend that you just forget about it.

  1. minify
  2. uglify along with minify you must uglify your code, which make it difficult to understand, it will renames the variables and function in very ugly manner, not easy to break the code.
    Also you can encrypt it well, you have and have to decrypt when it is needed to use, and that can't be remain hidden from the front end tools
