How to zip a directory on the server

software development

#1

I already uploaded 350MB of data, much of it already compressed but I want to make it all one file for download (on the server). I no longer have pkzip or I would have tried compressing it first. Is there a way I can zip this file on the server so a user can download it and expand it on his PC?

gzip, rar, tar, and zip are all available on the server and can be used via SSH.

I believe you can archive over WebFTP as well.

Thanks much. I downloaded 7-zip and used this on the desktop to zip up my large file and uploaded it again. Next time, I’ll know I can do it on the server.
