I’d suggest taking a look at this here for encoding PHP scripts:

Not a free solution but you can test it out with the free trial, which I did some years ago.

PHP Encoder 9.0
With the ionCube Encoder, you can...
Encode PHP scripts with compiled bytecode for best performance and protection.
Use PHP language features up to PHP 5.6.
Produce encoded PHP files to run on the latest PHP 5.6 and earlier.
Encrypt non-PHP files such as XML and templates.
Generate license files to restrict access to encoded files (Pro/Cerberus editions).
Enable obfuscation of variables and function, method and class names.
Encode PHP shell scripts.
Prevent file tampering through use of digital signatures.
Prevent replacement of files by unauthorised ones.
Generate files to expire on a given date or after a time period (Pro/Cerberus editions).
Restrict files to run on any combination of IP addresses and/or server names (Pro/Cerberus
Restrict files to run on specific MAC addresses (Cerberus edition).
Integrate with the ionCube Package Foundry.
Add readable comments to encoded files for custom copyright, license details etc.
Have custom messages and custom handling when files expire or aren't permissioned to run.
And more!
Kind Regards,
