php zip installation on linux

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment

>pecl install zip

got the following error:

checking for the location of zlib... configure: error: zip support requires ZLIB.
Use --with-zlib-dir=<DIR> to specify prefix where ZLIB include and library are located

what does this mean?

How to&Answers:

The PHP zip functionality relies on the ZLIB libary, you need to install it first.


Sounds like your PHP installation wasn’t compiled with zlib support. You may have to reconfigure PHP. From the manual:

Zlib support in PHP is not enabled by default. You will need to configure PHP –with-zlib[=DIR]
