>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?
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]
