I was loading the new Joomla 2.5 (with auto update feature so we don't have to rely on DH one-click) . One of the features is "Native Zip"
From Joomla's website:
"This feature adds a check during install to let you know if you have native ZIP enabled on your host. Native ZIP is recommended because it is much faster than using PHP to unzip. The slower speed of using PHP unzip could result in timeouts when you install large extensions or updates."
Does DH have this feature turned on or can we turn it on for a Hosting account? Being Totally NOOB to PHP i am not sure if i sohuld just submit a ticket to DH asking or take on trying to install this feature? Honestly, unless a security risk, i don't understand why it wouldn't be defaulted on?
Question: Is PHP Native Zip allowed to be turned on for a Hosting plan and if so, how would i do it? Would DH have to turn this on or install? If me, (i saw a script for having custome PHP from SXi but it seems you need to load Zip.SO?) then i am totally lost unless someone can point me in the right direction?
