Working with Zend Guard Loader

The Zend Guard Loader is a PHP extension that is used to run code that was encoded or obfuscated using Zend Guard. PHP code that was either encoded or obfuscated using the Zend Guard, or which is license restricted will only work if the Zend Guard Loader component is installed and enabled.


Zend Guard Loader is not supported by Zend Server with PHP version 5.4.


To ensure optimal performance, if you do not require the Zend Guard Loader component, do not install it, or disable it.
