Zip and Unzip files with FTP client/Filezilla

Abdul AwalArticles, Tips, Web Development11 Comments

As a Freelance Web Developer, I work on many hosting panels, I have to transfer sites from one server to another very frequently.

While doing this, I’ve faced a very common problem many times in last few years. Some hosting company doesn’t provide a rich file manager or in some cases client gives only ftp account details.

If I download all files once and upload to other server again using an FTP CLIENT like FileZilla, It requires lots of time. Because filezilla processes files one by one.

That’s why I started to find a solution to make the process faster and effective and finally I have a solution for both zip and unzip. Now I can zip and unzip files within seconds!

However, I know many people are looking for a similar solution and that’s why I am writing this post. You can follow the articles below to zip and unzip files using FileZilla:

    It’s look like Binfer is seeding big files to email account?
    That’s not what we need here.

    I need to se what is on server side.

      Hi Brandon,
      Its recommended to remove the script files after getting the job done. There’s no security risk if you delete the files after doing zip/unzip.

    I do believe all of the ideas you’ve offered in your post.

    They’re very convincing and can definitely work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for novices.
    Could you please prolong them a little from next time? Thank
    you for the post.

    Works perfectly, it’s very useful, expecially when you are facing tasks like deploying moodle core files on servers that are accessible only by ftp.
