resource zip_read ( resource $zip ) Reads the next entry in a zip file archive. ### Parameters zip A ZIP file previously opened with zip_open(). ### Return Values Returns a directory entry resource for later use with the zip_entry_... functions, or FALSE if there are no more entries to read, or an error code if an error occurred. ### See Also add a note ### User Contributed Notes 2 notes nico at nicoswd dot com 6 years ago  If you get an error like this: Warning: zip_read() expects parameter 1 to be resource, integer given in xxxxxx on line x It's because zip_open() failed to open the file and returned an error code instead of a resource. It took me a while to figure out why it failed to open the file, until I tried to use the FULL path to the file. <?php // Even if the file exists, zip_open() will return an error code.$file = 'file.zip'; $zip = zip_open($file); // The workaround: $file = getcwd() . '/file.zip'; // Or:$file = 'C:\\path\\to\\file.zip'; ?> This worked for me on Windows at least. I'm not sure about other platforms. 
 Note: Only the first 65535 entries will be returned, even if your archive contains more entries. See https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=59118 for details.
