Server based zip/uzip or tar/untar command

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a tool or something I can put on my web sever (rented but have cpanel access) for unzipping and zipping files? I want to be able to send a zip and have it uncompress or compress a folder and obtain it? Trying to speed up the upload/download of a large number of small files.. ideas?

The WUFTPD supports commands like 'get bla.gz' when there is just a 'bla' file. Some goes for 'get directory.tar.gz' when there is only a direcotry with name 'directory'.

Well, that's an FTP solution, not a HTTP one, though. Alternatively, make the Apache HTTPD hand out pages with gzip compression encoding. (mod_gzip)
