       $zdir=dirname(zip_entry_name($zip_entry));
       $zname=zip_entry_name($zip_entry);

       if(!zip_entry_open($zip,$zip_entry,"r")) {$e.="Unable to proccess file '{$zname}'";continue;}
       if(!is_dir($zdir)) mkdirr($zdir,0777);

  if(is_dir($pn)||empty($pn)) return true;
  $pn=str_replace(array('/', ''),DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR,$pn);

  if(is_file($pn)) {trigger_error('mkdirr() File exists', E_USER_WARNING);return false;}

  $next_pathname=substr($pn,0,strrpos($pn,DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR));

see this http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5256551/unzip-the-file-using-php-collapses-the-zip-file-into-one-folder

fopen and fwrite should come after using fopen of the required directory, in that way you can place the files in specified folder

This may be oversimplifying the question, but why not just move the ZIP archive to the destination directory location you want, then extract the files right there?

I was wanting to do just that. this is why i have

copy('01-31-13_backup.zip', '../Demo/01-31-13_backup.zip');

$file = '../Demo/01-31-13_backup.zip';

Open in new window


and

unzip('../Demo/'.$file);

Open in new window


at the bottom. I was thinking it would do just that unzip in the Demo dir. But it doesn't what am i missing.

I don't know what you're missing and I don't really have anything other than suggestions (no time to test this process any time soon).  So here is my suggestion.  

1. Unzip the archive wherever it happens to be.  That part already works, so no magic is needed.

2. After Unzip, copy the files to the destination directory.

3. Unlink the files and the ZIP archive.
