We're developing a simple system to tar.gz or zip large media files (10 to 200mb each) into 1GB segments with a set of files. From basic research we found zip (http://pecl.php.net/package/zip
) is one option as exec command is disabled on our server. Although our server is not equipped with zip pecl extension, we can request our hosting company to install it. Is this the best way? Or can you expert guys suggest better alternatives?
Thanks in advance.
