does anybody here know how to unzip a zip archive using php on the dreamhost server?
As far as I’m aware, the DreamHost installation of PHP has zlib, so the Zip File Functions will work. As an alternative, you can login to the shell (you can use SSH with PuTTY, for example) and type the following command:
unzip filename.zipAmazing, huh?
i was looking at getting php to unzip an archive when a user registers, but i have solved the problem now using exec()
