Hi gstalin,

I misread the questions and I moved the actual .zip folder.  Here is a nice approach to locate the .zip file though.  Next we just have to find out how to modify .zip files with php and move the inner files.

<?php
// Directory Name
$dirName = 'zips';
// New Directory Name (where to move zip files)
$newDirName = 'zips/zip2';

// Open Directory
$dir = opendir($dirName);

// Read Files
while ($file = readdir($dir))
{
  // Check if file ends in .zip
  if (preg_match('/\.zip$/i', $file))
  {
    // Move the file
    // On Unix you can do this easily by executing a terminal command
    // to move a file: rm oldFileName newLocationAndName

    // General case
    // Get Contents
    $contents = file_get_contents($dirName . '/' . $file);

    // Create a file with the same name
    $newFile = fopen($newDirName . '/' . $file, "x+");
    fwrite($newFile, $contents);
   
    // Close the file handler
    fclose($newFile);
   
    // Echo
    echo "Moved: $dirName/$file to $newDirName/$file";
  }
}

?>

Just set your own $dirName and $newDirName and this should work to move the .zips.  This does not delete the original file!  Just wanted to let you know that.  Therefore it is safe to test with.
