In order to use these functions you must compile PHP with zip support by using the --enable-zip configure option.

As of PHP 5.6.0 a --with-libzip=DIR configure option has been added to use a system libzip installation. libzip version 0.11 is required, with 0.11.2 or later recommended.


As of PHP 5.3 this extension is built-in. Before, Windows users need to enable php_zip.dll inside of php.ini in order to use these functions.

Installation via PECL

Information for installing this PECL extension may be found in the manual chapter titled Installation of PECL extensions. Additional information such as new releases, downloads, source files, maintainer information, and a CHANGELOG, can be located here: »

If installing this in a Docker image using:
"docker-php-ext-install zip"

you may get an error such as:
"docker-php-ext-install zip returned a non-zero code: 1"
"zip support requires ZLIB"

Docker documentation now suggests this as the proper way to install, to ensure the dependant libraries are installed with it:
# Install zip
RUN apt-get update && \
     apt-get install -y \
         zlib1g-dev \
         && docker-php-ext-install zip
