I'm with the two Richard's on this, those users shouldn't have telnet
access to the host server at all. Users should be using the browser to
access your site.

Other than that, the most important thing you can do is to regularly back
up your code and database to another location so that if something happens
to the working box (and likely all tech products, its not IF its WHEN) you
can restore the code and database with minimal data loss

1 - Don't allow terminal access to your box.
2 - Use a PHP byte code encoder (IonCube, Zend Guard) - not perfect as
can be reversed to access the code in a form.
3 - Don't use PHP.

Thanks to all.

I apologize, but I did not properly define the problem I am addressing. I have written code for a POS [Point Of Sale] system to be used in a store. I don't expect the store owner to play with the code. His friends [or enemies] might try. There are two logins to the computer, ethan [me] and worker. Worker has to be able to access the code to use it. He has to be blocked from reading, writing or copying the code.
