I want to add a whole directory recursively, keeping the same structure.

How can I do this?  I found a class but I don't know how to use it.

I want to backup EVERYTHING in:
       "C:\\Server\\root\\example.com"

And place in in a zip:
       "C:\\Temp\\example.com.zip"

<?php
class MyZipArchive extends ZipArchive
{
    /**
     *
     * Adds a directory recursively.
     *
     * @param string $filename The path to the file to add.
     *
     * @param string $localname Local name inside ZIP archive.
     *
     */
    public function addDir($filename, $localname)
    {
        $this->addEmptyDir($localname);
        $iter = new RecursiveDirectoryIterator($filename);
 
        foreach ($iter as $fileinfo) {
            if (! $fileinfo->isFile() && !$fileinfo->isDir()) {
                continue;
            }
 
            $method = $fileinfo->isFile() ? 'addFile' : 'addDir';
            $this->$method($fileinfo->getPathname(), $localname . '/' .
                $fileinfo->getFilename());
        }
    }
}
?>

>>extends ZipArchive
you will need the ZipArchive class as well.

try:
$myArchive = new MyZipArchive();
$myArchive.addDir("C:\\Server\\root\\example.com","C:\\Temp\\example.com.zip");

I get an error:

Call to undefined function addDir()
<?php
 
// header('Content-type: application/tar');
 
 
$zip = new ZipArchive();
$filename = "c:\\Temp\\wb.zip";
 
if ($zip->open($filename, ZIPARCHIVE::CREATE)!==TRUE) {
    exit("Cannot open <$filename>\n");
}
 
$zip.addDir("C:\\Server\\root\\example.com");
 
echo "numfiles: " . $zip->numFiles . "\n";
echo "status:" . $zip->status . "\n";
$zip->close();
 
class MyZipArchive extends ZipArchive
{
    /**
     *

     *
     */
    public function addDir($filename, $localname)
    {
        $this->addEmptyDir($localname);
        $iter = new RecursiveDirectoryIterator($filename);
 
        foreach ($iter as $fileinfo) {
            if (! $fileinfo->isFile() && !$fileinfo->isDir()) {
                continue;
            }
 
            $method = $fileinfo->isFile() ? 'addFile' : 'addDir';
            $this->$method($fileinfo->getPathname(), $localname . '/' .
                $fileinfo->getFilename());
        }
    }
}

That should be $zip->addDir() not $zip.addDir :)

sorry. Should have been an arrow, not a dot. try:
$myArchive = new MyZipArchive();
$myArchive->addDir("C:\\Server\\root\\example.com","C:\\Temp\\example.com.zip");

Now I get this error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined method MyZipArchive::addEmptyDir() in C:\Server\root\example.com\do.php on line 31

Am I doing something wrong or does my server just not support this?
<?php
 
$zip = new MyZipArchive();
$filename = "c:\\Temp\\wb.zip";
 
if ($zip->open($filename, ZIPARCHIVE::CREATE)!==TRUE) {
    exit("Cannot open <$filename>\n");
}
 
$zip->addDir("C:\\Server\\root\\example.com","wb");
 
echo "numfiles: " . $zip->numFiles . "\n";
echo "status:" . $zip->status . "\n";
$zip->close();
 
class MyZipArchive extends ZipArchive
{
    /**
     *
     * Adds a directory recursively.
     *
     * @param string $filename The path to the file to add.
     *
     * @param string $localname Local name inside ZIP archive.
     *
     */
    public function addDir($filename, $localname)
    {
        $this->addEmptyDir($localname);
        $iter = new RecursiveDirectoryIterator($filename);
 
        foreach ($iter as $fileinfo) {
            if (! $fileinfo->isFile() && !$fileinfo->isDir()) {
                continue;
            }
 
            $method = $fileinfo->isFile() ? 'addFile' : 'addDir';
            $this->$method($fileinfo->getPathname(), $localname . '/' .
                $fileinfo->getFilename());
        }
    }
}
 
?>

You need to include() the file that contains the original ZipArchive class; at the moment PHP is extending a blank class, meaning that the method addEmptyDir() does not exist.

Make sure you include() the file that contains the ZipArchive class first at the top of your script, and try again. :)

The line giving you the problem is line 10. What else is on that file?

I thought that:
"you will need the ZipArchive class as well."

was clear enough :)
