With php 5.2.6, the following code created a new zip or replaced a existing zip.
Note that I am only using the ZIPARCHIVE::OVERWRITE flag.

<?php
    $zip
= new ZipArchive();
   
$opened = $zip->open( $zipFileName, ZIPARCHIVE::OVERWRITE );
    if(
$opened !== true ){
        die(
"cannot open {$zipFileName} for writing.");
    }
   
$zip->addFromString( $name, $contents );
   
$zip->close();
?>

Now, with php 5.2.8, it does not work and gives this warning:

Warning: ZipArchive::addFromString() [ziparchive.addfromstring]: Invalid or unitialized Zip object in [myfile] on line [myline]

To fix this, you must specify the flags as create or overwrite.

<?php
    $zip
= new ZipArchive();
   
$opened = $zip->open( $zipFileName, ZIPARCHIVE::CREATE | ZIPARCHIVE::OVERWRITE );
    if(
$opened !== true ){
        die(
"cannot open {$zipFileName} for writing.");
    }
   
$zip->addFromString( $name, $contents );
   
$zip->close();
?>

When googling for the error message I found a lot of people that had it but couldn't figure out why they were getting it.
I hope this helps someone.

If you have archives that you want to overwrite just use:

ZIPARCHIVE::CREATE

It will overwrite existing archives and at the same time create new ones if they don't already exist.

ZIPARCHIVE::OVERWRITE won't work for both of these scenarios.

Calling ZipArchive->open() will not create an empty zip archive file.
I found this out the hard way. I wrote code that produced positive
results: I.E. the return value from the call to ZipArchive was TRUE
and the empty zip file was not created. So at least call
ZipArchive->addFromString(<filename.zip>, '<minimal content>')
when creating a new zip archive file.

Even though the api specifies that the flags are optional I found that I had to specify the flag ZIPARCHIVE::CREATE for an archive to be opened.
This is on a Windows 7 system with PHP 5.3.0

As discussed in http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=54128 on Windows Server systems (2003, 2008) and IIS there is a problem when you want to unzip file stored in C:\Windows\Temp folder.
User of worker process IUSR_XXX has no directory listing right for C:\Windows\Temp and this is a reason why ZipArchive::open() fails with error 11 (error open). So it is not a good idea to store file for unzipping in folder defined by sys_get_temp_dir().

The file name does not need to end in '.zip' if it is created using tempnam().  You just need to overwrite the file instead of trying to read it:

<?php
$file
= tempnam("tmp", "zip");
   
$zip = new ZipArchive();

// Zip will open and overwrite the file, rather than try to read it.
$zip->open($file, ZipArchive::OVERWRITE);

$zip->close();

// Stream the file to the client
header("Content-Type: application/zip");
header("Content-Length: " . filesize($file));
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=\"a_zip_file.zip\"");
readfile($file);

unlink($file);
?>

If the directory you are writing or saving into does not have the correct permissions set, you won't get any error messages and it will look like everything worked fine... except it won't have changed!

Instead make sure you collect the return value of ZipArchive::close(). If it is false... it didn't work.

ZipArchive::OVERWRITE does NOT mean an existing file would be deleted when ZipArchive::open() is called.

In fact, the existing file will be deleted before PHP saves the zip archive on disk.

PHP takes these steps to finish zipping:

1. When ZipArchive::open('xx.zip') is called
If 'xx.zip' exists and is a zip archive, it will be opened and read as a temporary zip file,
If the file does not exist, and ZipArchive::CREATE is applied, php will create a temporary empty zip file
In these cases, ZipArchive::open() returns true, otherwise it returns an integer error code.
2. Adds file(s) to the temporary zip file when methods such as addFile(), addFromString() are called.
3. Deletes the existing file before saving the temporary zip file on disk.
4. Save the temporary zip file on disk
5.  Closes the active archive when ZipArchive::close() is called or at the end of the script

Since PHP does NOT delete the existing file before saving the zip archive on disk, you should use unset() to delete it if you want to zip that file's containing folder and save the zip archive in that folder, otherwise you will get a larger and larger zip archive everytime you refresh the page.

Further to what rickky at gmail dot com was saying, I've had that problem while trying to cache zip files and found that I had to set the permissions of the containing folder to 777 to get it to work.

Because this is a potential security weakness if on a public viewable folder, I'd recommend moving the folder so that it is no longer within public_html. You can then use readfile() to output the archive to the browser, with some HTTP headers to tell the browser it is a zip file.

to anyone getting an error ZIPARCHIVE::ER_READ = 5, when
doing $zip->open($zipfile) with a ZIP file containing a total of more then (around) 800 files (even when they are in sub-directories).

possibly related bugs 40873, 8714:

1. it was not an OS limit, because it worked when called from windows via samba on the same file at the same place

2. it wasn't working under 32bit linux

with php 5.3.0 the issue seems to be resolved.

Most of the time people iterate over a directory with 'opendir' or 'readdir' to add files to a zip. Like...

while ($file = readdir($dir)) { ... $zip->addFile($file) }

Note that $zip->addFile($file) will only work in the current directory if your at the root. You will need to add the correct path to that $file string variable to have the full file name like ...

$zip->addFile($dir . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . $file); will work.

This may identify why you may get a read error when closing the file.

Enjoy.

If you try this to open a file with creation in mind (= empty zip to fill with other files), this may not work :

$res = $zip->open($zip_file, ZipArchive::CREATE);

// you may get false

Try this instead, it should work :

$res = $zip->open($zip_file, ZIPARCHIVE::OVERWRITE);
