Hello guys, thanks for your responses, this is what I've got so far "<?php system('unzip filename.zip'); ?>" upon accessing this code, it will extract filename.zip to the server it resides in. Rather than self extract, I need to look for another way to make it act like a self extraction or what ever way round.
The the dilema is I'm trying to extract from and into a remote server, I know this is somehow possible, but I don't know how. Thanks in advance and I'm really grateful for every help possible.
You can, perhaps write a function to display/run files after extraction using something like
an include or similar, but you will need to check permissions on the server. It's one thing to get it working on your dev machine where you have all permissions but as pointed out by jwenting, another thing entirely on a server where you don't.
