    Question How to install a Win Zip Self-Extractor

    Hi Everybody,

    How do you install a "winzip self extractor" software in public_html/.?

    It takes a long time to upload a large number of files via ftp. If the folder
    containing the files is zipped and the zipped file is then uploaded to a folder
    in public_html and then unzipped using the winzip self-extractor, it could save
    a lot of time.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Not sure if i am right? But cpanel should have this facility & maybe for some security reason, its turned off.
    If its images you are zipping? it wont make much difference on the KB's.

    Question Re: How to install a Win Zip Self-Extractor

    Hi Chris,

    My family tree is a software generated html folders and files. Every time I update any information to my family tree I need to regenerate the html folders as the individual files and family files are interlinked by the program.

    I currently have 4802 individual files plus 1310 family files which are linked together. Every few months I have to update new info and new family members.

    If I do not regenerate the html folders as a whole entity the family tree will not work properly.

    Here is a link to the family tree to give you a better understanding.

    If I can save everything in a zipped folder and upload the zip folder via ftp,
    it will only take a few seconds otherwise it will take a very long time to upload everything.
