I’m posting here asking for all of PHP coders help in a very delicate matter.
For the last 2 months, I’ve been developing an opensource CMS system called PHP iNFiNiTY,
(yes another one !, the world just can't have too many :P)
Before that I was voluntarily helping another opensource software called PHP izabi,
this voluntary work involved providing support to new users and occasionally writing a few mods, because of my involvement the founders or Izabi decided to make me an admin.
PHPizabi was never open to joined development, there was only one developer and he did everything himself, we only helped with providing feed back and bug reports...
Up until lately PHPizabi source was 5% encrypted with ioncube, this included : index.php and several files in the "includes" folder.
I didn't announce my project (PHP iNFiNiTY) yet and I didn't post about it anywhere yet cuz it's still in beta and needs a lot more work....
The izabi founders discovered my software and immediately accused me of stealing Izabi source code !!! Of course to do that I’m also accused of cracking ioncube !!!!
I never used anything from Izabi source, and I never had access to it, all the packages from izabi were distributed with that 5% encrypted content which nobody could ever access ...
I think of the people on izabi as friends and I continually try to end the silly “war” that the founders have started, though no matter how hard I tried, they keep insulting and attacking me ruthlessly ...
Every time I’d mention bringing in a 3rd party coder and have him decide if anything was stolen or ever cloned they just ignored the statement and never responded.
So I decided to take matters into my own hands to try and resolve the issue. I am searching for support from you guys, if you have free time and think you can do a comparison of both softwares, please do and post your findings here
My only concern is to make it clear that PHP iNFiNiTY is a self built software and to stop the wrongful accusations, I wish not to be in any kind of “war” and/or conflict with any programmers.
you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and you can contact the izabi coder at email@example.com
my software is available for free at :
their software is available for free at :
Please note that unlike PHP izabi, PHP iNFiNiTY is still under heavy development and wasn't even meant to be released to the public at this point ...
Thank you all for you cooperation.
