PHP Zip Functions

PHP Zip Introduction

The Zip files functions allows you to read ZIP files.


The ZIP extension requires libzip.


Linux Systems

For these functions to work, you have to compile PHP with --enable-zip.

PHP 5.6: Use the --with-libzip=DIR configure option to use a system libzip installation. libzip version 0.11 is required, with 0.11.2 or later recommended.

PHP 7.3: Building against the bundled libzip is discouraged, but still possible by adding --without-libzip to the configuration.

Windows Systems

Before PHP 5.3: Users must enable "php_zip.dll" inside of "php.ini" for these functions to work.

From PHP 5.3: The ZIP extension is built-in.
