Extracting Files On tthe Server?

Can I upload compressed files to this server and decompress them somehow via ftp or something?
Not via FTP, no. You'll need to upload your own code to do that.leithant wrote:Can I upload compressed files to this server and decompress them somehow via ftp or something?
You are more than likely doing something wrong. Can you PM me with your website details and SN and I'll see if there's anything obvious (this'll be just a quick, rudimentary check).leithant wrote:Ok I installed a script to extract zip files and it works if the index.php is in the root directory. But if I put it in a subdirectory it won't work. Am I just doing something wrong, or isn't that possible?
That is what I suspected would've been the case. Glad you sorted it out.leithant wrote:Thanks for that - but I found it was the new permissions setting on the new server - all sorted!
Thanks for that. I'll put a link in to it.BTW if anyone's interested I tried many unzip scripts, but PHP Unzipper was the only one I found that worked reliably. You can find it here:
