I dont seem to have support for zip-files in the server(wampstack). I work in the admin-area in one of my webshopps installed on my wampstack, and i need to add a template, and to do so i am supossed to upload the zipfile. But when i do that i get the message that says “Zip is not installed on your server. Ask your host for further information.”
So, how do i install zip-function to the wampstack? Cant find the info anywhere.
Do i need to install extra modules to the wampstack?

Best regards
Peter

Hi,

You can add the zip extension uncommenting the following line in the installdir/php/php.ini file:

;extension=php_zip.dll

and restart the servers from the BitNami Start Menu shortcuts.

Thank you.
This means that zip-functions are already in place but “switched-off” after the stack has been installed? Why is that, is it any problem with having that function uncommented?

Thanks again for the answer.
Best regards
Peter
