Those extensions don't exist anymore.

is this statement about all files in group a and group b or only about the files in group b ?

i have the same problem :
php.ini (V 5.0) is refering to php_zip.dll but no file in directory ext.

so function "zip_open" doesnt work. i tried copy old version (v 4.36) of php_zip.dll in the directory ext and uncomment the significant line in php.ini but .. uhh.. doesn't work

is there actually a solution ?

best regards - Yves-Marie

PECL extensions such as ZIP are located in the PECL download, this is linked to on the main download page as "Collection of PECL modules for PHP 5.0.0".  php_zip.dll exists in there as do all the other PECL files...there are a lot.

Making this a documentation problem.  EVERY extension that exists inside this Windows PECL download should be noted in the docs.  For example the ZIP configure.xml should mention it.  Also, the Windows extensions.xml should make reference to all of these too (or at least make some reference to it).  

To move beyond the PHP manual, downloads.php should let users know what PECL extensions are as many seem to be confused by this.  install.txt should also mention it.

Also a brief note should exist in php.ini (above the list of dlls) mentioning that some of these are PECL extensions, a separate download.

It's also worth mentioning that all of this is only as of PHP 5.

Assigning to self!

I manage to download the PECL files and place the php_zip.dll into my c:\php\ext but it still doesn't work. I'm getting a:

PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\PHP\ext\php_zip.dll' - Access is denied. in Unknown on line 0 

error message.

This can't be. My php_gd2.dll works. Why not this?

Hmm....yea, think I got it this time.

Nothing wrong really. Just the file permission of php_zip.dll that needs to be modified accordingly.

The last step of this task (php.ini modification) has been completed, so, this bug is now closed :)
