I'm trying to get bulk photo uploads working with a Drupal web site.
The person who coded the Drupal photos module I'm using decided to use a
zip archive as a means of batching together a collection of picture
files for a bulk upload. Apache is reporting the following PHP error
when the bulk upload feature is used:
[Sun Nov 16 22:05:38 2008] [error] [client 192.168.0.192] PHP Fatal
error: Class 'ZipArchive'
not found in
The PHP code at line 1375 in photos.module is an unremarkable
instantiation of the zip archive handling object. Some Google searches
indicate that zip archive handling is a compile time option of PHP and
lack of it would cause this error. Running php -i tells me that the
CentOS/RHEL PHP was not built with the --enable-zip configuration option.
Does anyone know of a way to get PHP to correctly handle zip archives
short of rebuilding my PHP installation from the source RPM with
--enable-zip as a configuration option?
