    Hi Reader's,
    Welcome to FindNerd, today we are going to discuss how to unzip a file using PHP ?

    Basically zip_open() function is used for opening the unzip file for reading. This is very simple method to unzip a zip file. So we can say that  zip_open() function opens a zip archive for reading.

    The zip_open() function return a open file when it goes for SUCCESS and return FALSE when it goes for failure.

     Syntax of  zip_open() function


    filename is a required parameter

     Suppose you have a zip file name is and you want to open in PHP function so you can use below code

         // here call your file path.
        $zipfile = zip_open("/var/www/html/test/"); 
        //call while loop
        while($Filedata = zip_read($zipfile)) 
        echo "Filename: " . zip_entry_name($Filedata) . "<br>";
