    I want to build a sort of file sharing website for my class, very basic, and I’ve got most of it figured out, except 1 detail:

    Unzip an uploaded zip archive.
    I’m expecting most users to be uploading a collection of files, which they can easily zip up (target group is near exclusively mac users anyhow) and upload that. The problem is, how do I unzip it so when it’s up, people can view/download files inside the folder, rather than grab the whole package, and download a rezipped version if they want.

    One key thing though: I’d be putting this on a regular web host (IX), so I can’t install anything into the apache software, a library.php would work though.

    Thanks! I had found something like that through google but got the impression it needed some messing with the apache files.
