Yii 1.1: ezip

EZip - for zip archives

This extension is for working with zip. Based on comments to http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.zip-open.php



  • Yii 1.0 or above


  • Extract the release file under protected/extensions/zip


Introduce EZip to Yii. Add definition to CWebApplication config file (main.php)


Now you can access EZip methods as follows:

$zip = Yii::app()->zip;
$zip->makeZip('./','./toto.zip'); // make an ZIP archive
var_export($zip->infosZip('./toto.zip'), false); // get infos of this ZIP archive (without files content)
var_export($zip->infosZip('./toto.zip')); // get infos of this ZIP archive (with files content)
$zip->extractZip('./toto.zip', './1/'); //

Thanx for this extension

Thanx for this extension but please use <?php instead <? because if someone has short tags turned off error will occur.

Use DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR, instead of '/' on the line mentioned by the previous post. So it will be similar to this: $this->addZipItem($zip, realpath(dirname($item)).DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR, realpath($item));

bug line 48

I've found a bug in line 48

incorrect: $this->addZipItem($zip, realpath(dirname($item)).'/', realpath($item).'/');

correct: $this->addZipItem($zip, realpath(dirname($item)).'/', realpath($item));

Maybe is useful for others
