  Old  Protecting PHP source codes

hey fellow PHP developer,
Is there any way we could protect our PHP source code from being modified after a 3rd person receives the code? I had developed a web application and when i give the source code to another person i want it to be write protected. Currently i have put a security system, if the code is being edited by a third party the system will shut down dropping all the databases but this has a serious flaw. This kind of protection works only with non-developers. Is there any way we can protect this software from being modified? Basically i don't want the credits part, which has my name and other info in it to be modified. right now i have just put a sequence of 0s and 1s as my credits which later on gets decoded for the actual text to be displayed. This also easily traceable and yeah the application is written in OOP!

ionCube is a decent solution. Costs money though.

What's the concern with them being able to modify your code?

Nothing is 100% secure. even ionCube can be reverse engineered. But still ionCube is good and make live harder for those that want to edit the code.
