Hi experts,

We're running a build of php 5.2.3 but the zipArchive isn't working and we get:

Fatal error: Class 'ZipArchive' not found in ourfilename.php

php_zip.dll is in the ext folder and the extension is enabled in php.ini

What else do we need to do?

Help appreciated...

didn't compile it ourselves, it was pre-installed on a Fasthosts Dedicated server...  could you please give me instructions on exactly what I would need to do to compile as you mention above... we have full desktop access so we can do anything required.

I am going to assume a Windows box because you said you had "desktop access" and you mentioned a DLL file.

To get it working on a Windows machine your going to need to go download  zLib ( http://www.zlib.net/ ) here are the instructions given by PHP on how to get it running ( http://us2.php.net/manual/en/zip.installation.php )
