ZipArchive::addGlobAdd files from a directory by glob pattern


public ZipArchive::addGlob(string $pattern, int $flags = 0, array $options = []): array|false

Add files from a directory which match the glob pattern.

Hinweis: Für maximale Portierbarkeit wird empfohlen, in ZIP-Dateinamen immer Schrägstriche (/) als Verzeichnis-Trennzeichen zu verwenden.



A glob() pattern against which files will be matched.


A bit mask of glob() flags.


An associative array of options. Available options are:

  • "add_path"

    Prefix to prepend when translating to the local path of the file within the archive. This is applied after any remove operations defined by the "remove_path" or "remove_all_path" options.

  • "remove_path"

    Prefix to remove from matching file paths before adding to the archive.

  • "remove_all_path"

    true to use the file name only and add to the root of the archive.

  • "flags"

    Bitmask consisting of ZipArchive::FL_OVERWRITE, ZipArchive::FL_ENC_GUESS, ZipArchive::FL_ENC_UTF_8, ZipArchive::FL_ENC_CP437, ZipArchive::FL_OPEN_FILE_NOW. The behaviour of these constants is described on the ZIP constants page.

  • "comp_method"

    Compression method, one of the ZipArchive::CM_* constants, see ZIP constants page.

  • "comp_flags"

    Compression level.

  • "enc_method"

    Encryption method, one of the ZipArchive::EM_* constants, see ZIP constants page.

  • "enc_password"

    Password used for encryption.


An array of added files on success Bei einem Fehler wird false zurückgegeben.

Neither 'remove_all_path' or 'remove_path' options seem to be workng

For me the better way seems to be:

$options = array('add_path' => DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR, 'remove_all_path' => TRUE);

On Windows uses \, on others /

Yes!! neither 'remove_all_path' or 'remove_path' be working,if you want the right result,you should like this, $option = array( 'add_path' => '/', 'remove_all_path' => 'your path' ); 'add_path' just give a '/', then you will (; 。

As others suggested, to remove all paths, use the space as basepath.
Zip opened with builtin utility on a Windows XP and WinRAR.

$options = array('add_path' => ' ','remove_all_path' => TRUE);

Thanks for all contributers.

Doesn't work with the following options:
$options = array('remove_all_path' => TRUE);
$zipArchive->addGlob($path."/*", GLOB_BRACE, $options);

The full path to file is adding to the archive.

Works well if:
$options = array('add_path' => './','remove_all_path' => TRUE);
