PHP unzip on IIS7 Windows server

All:

I am trying to unzip a .zip file on a server with the following PHP script

<?php
$zip = new ZipArchive;
if ($zip->open('test.zip') === TRUE) {
    $zip->extractTo('/my/unarchive/dir/');
    $zip->close();
    echo 'ok';
} else {
    echo 'failed';
}
?>

Open in new window


The code segment is generating the following error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in test-unzip.php on line 4

I suspect this may be linux code and must be altered for a window server...

Any thoughts?

This works (must specify absolute Windows path)

<?php
$destinationPath=$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].'/my/unarchive/dir/';
$sourceFileName=$destinationPath.'test.zip';

$zip = new ZipArchive;
if ($zip->open($sourceFileName) === TRUE) {
    $zip->extractTo($destinationPath);
    $zip->close();
    echo 'ok';
} else {
    echo 'failed';
}
?>
