A few days ago I’ve shared a php script to unzip files. After that I received a few queries for a different script that will create zip files with content of current directory. And that’s why I am writing this article today.
Today, I’m going to share a php script that will create zip file using content of current directory. Its a very simple script and the workflow is simple as well!
Let’s know about how it works:
If you run the script it will find all the files, folders inside the folder (where you placed the script) and create a zip file inside this folder with all the files and folders.
With version 2.0, you can now select the files and folders you want to include in zip file.
Here’s a video that explains features and way to use:
How to use ?
- Simply click here to get the script
- Upload zipCF.php on the directory which you want to make zip file
- Open zipCF.php with your browser
- Provide a Name for the zip file
- Click on Create Zip file
- It will create the zip file if everything is ok and provide a success message just below the submit button
- If you see the success message, go to ftp client or browse direct url to zip file from your browser
- Download the newly created zip file
- Use it anyhow you need
- Delete zipCF.php file from your server to avoid security issues

Thanks to David Walsh for his very useful article which I’ve used to create this script.
