Description 

Author

This package creates a ZIP archive with all files from a folder.

It provides an example script showing how to create a ZIP archive file from files in a folder and any sub-folders the folder may contain.

Usually, PHP installations provide the ZipArchive class with a method to add a globe or add pattern to add multiple files into a zip. In some cases, the add globe is not always working.

This example script uses the ZipArchive, RecursiveDirectoryIterator, and RecursiveIteratorIterator for adding all files in all folders into a zip.

The result is compatible with Windows Explorer Zip.
