Hi, PHP Gurus,
I am not a programmer.
I am embroidery digitizer running my own ecommerce website.
I would like to get help with this problem:

I purchased a wrapper script - from Incasoft.com - to translate our website with Google Translation service to different languages.
This script supposed to save the translated files on the server.
My problem is the script is written in some foreign language and I am affraid to put a php scrip on my website that I cant even read.
Is there a way to figure out what language is it written to check what the script really does?
Here is a small part of the script:

That's not a foreign language, it looks like you tried to cat a binary. In other words, you tried to read an exe in a text format.

Hi Don,

This is the index.php file within the folder that I opened with Dreamweaver. I supposed to upload the folder with the other files to my server and put this PHP inlcude line on other the pages of our website:

Code: [ Select ]
<?php include($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']."/Translate/Languages.php"); ?>
 
  1. <?php include($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']."/Translate/Languages.php"); ?>
  2.  


I was afraid that this is a malicious exe file incorporated into the php file that could steal data, or otherwise damage ou website.
I post the whole file, because the first part is look like a regular PHP script, but the rest is very funky to say the least.
Here is the entire file:
Code: [ Select ]

I don't know what it will do. You said you bought it from incasoft.com

Why don't you contact them and ask them what it is? See if they give you a straight answer.

Did you read the text at the beginning of the file?

Quote:
This is not a text file!


Quote:
Zend Optimizer not installed

This file was encoded by the Zend Guard. In order to run it, please install the Zend Optimizer (available without charge), version 3.0.0 or later.

What is the Zend Optimizer?

The Zend Optimizer is one of the most popular PHP plugins for performance-improvement, and has been available without charge, since the early days of PHP 4. It improves performance by scanning PHP's intermediate code and passing it through multiple Optimization Passes to replace inefficient code patterns with more efficient code blocks. The replaced code blocks perform exactly the same operations as the original code, only faster.

In addition to improving performance, the Zend Optimizer also enables PHP to transparently load files encoded by the Zend Guard.

The Zend Optimizer is a free product available for download from Zend Technologies. Zend Technologies also developed the PHP scripting engine, known as the Zend Engine

Hi fellow Las Vegan,
Thank you for taking time to help me.
It may sound cynical, especially on this forum, but I have the reason not to trust programs and programmers. Our website was sabotaged by programs and programmers several times. One hired programmer even tried to lock me out from my own website.
I am not a programmer, but I manage our site for many years and never see a code like this one. I assumed the file includes some kind of executive coding, so I tried to find someone with knowledge to figure out, if that part of the coding can be harmful, or not.
I don’t feel so dumb now that even the programmers on Ozzu could not answer that question. Now I have to go to Zend Technologies to get the answers.

I have one more question though:
Would these instructions in the program installation manual compromise the security of our website?

“Lastly, you need to ensure that your HTM/HTML files are able to execute PHP by including one of the following lines into an .htaccess file:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .html .htm
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .php .html .htm “

Thank you for taking time to read my posts.

I answered one of the questions. I told you that it wasn't a foreign language and that you tried to cat a binary. It was impossible to answer the question of Will it do damage? Because, there was no way to disassemble it.

Sorry Don,
I did not want to offend you.
I was just explaining my situation about the luck of my programming knowledge and my bad luck with some programmes and programmers here in Las Vegas.

Do you know the answer for my last question about putting a line in the htacces file?

Thanks again,

No problem, I'm not offended.

I don't have the answer to your last question but Apache does.

http://www.askapache.com/htaccess/php-h ... ricks.html

If that site doesn't answer your question, search Google for:

php in .htaccess
