You do realize that though you can open and read FROM .rar files, you can't actually create them? WinRar's main site.

If you're looking to open user-uploaded rar and zip files (the thought which scares the living hell out of me) then you will probably want to just stick with zip only, or maybe add gzip.

Hope this helps.

Don't know of one. Perhaps you can write one. It is possible to call rar through the command line.

i using a shared server i think i can´t do that in that kind os server

yes i know, i don´t want open the files uploaded by the user i want that the script can open and see the content for the users can find the content without downloading the files, this is already working for zip files but some files is compressed in rar format...
