Hi,

I have made a series of bash scripts that deal with some sort of monitoring and protection. I'd like to turn these scripts into a plugin (mostly PHP) that I'd like to be able to sell for a small monthly fee.

Questions:
- if I turn the bash scripts into PHP code, should I expect better or worse performance than bash? Should I consider other programming languages than PHP? Not that I know any other...
- I'd like to be able to issue a license for a certain IP and be able to change the license IP (much like cPanel does for itself); are there any copyright enforcing instruments for 3rd party plugins in the cPanel API?
- for obvious reasons I'd like to encode the PHP scripts; what decoders are available in the cPanel PHP binaries?

Thanks and kind regards!

Hi,

Well, given the fact that this is the cPanel developers sub-forum, I thought these questions might be relevant . At a bare minimum the last question (what de-obfuscation extensions are available into the cPanel PHP binary) I believe is 100% relevant.

Thanks for the link.

Regards!
