Zend Guard Loader for PHP 5.4
Created: Last updated:
I see a lot of questions about Zend Guard Loader for PHP 5.4 in my analytics, hence I think it is about time to provide an answer to this burning question.
Zend Guard Loader and PHP 5.3
First off real quick what you probably already know is that Zend Guard Loader does not work with PHP 5.4. In pretty much the same way like Zend Optimizer does not work with 5.3. Unfortunately the only version Zend Guard Loader supports is PHP 5.3 and nothing past that version.
Supported decoder for PHP 5.4
As of today 2/8/2013 and a short visit to the Zend download page for the decoders tells me that there is still no support for PHP 5.4 available. Also looking around their website I still see no sign or information when we can expect support PHP 5.4.
The only solution or latest version and combination that works is running PHP 5.3 with Zend Guard Loader.
