    hi guys,
    how can I unzip a file in webftp? is this option not added yet?
    its very useful for low speed users to manually extract a file while they have to upload thousands of small files.

    That's not possible. It's also not possible in a regular FTP client like SmartFTP or WS_FTP.

    I'm 100% sure its possible, its a simple module in php or perl, and cPanel also has it...

    CPanel might have it, but then CPanel does not use FTP for its webFTP. We use FTP for security reasons. The WebFTP in ISPConfig is not a PHP script that has direct access to your web folder.

    you mean its clearly impossible to unzip a chosen file?

    Yes, i think so.


    I just looked into the FTP RFC again, mayxbe its possible with the FTP exec command, but i have not tested it.
