To delete a zip file after it has been successfully downloaded in PHP, you can use the unlink() function to delete the file from the server.


Here is an example code snippet:

$file = '/path/to/your/file.zip';

// ... code for downloading the file here ...

// Deleting the file after download
if (file_exists($file)) {
    unlink($file);
    echo "File deleted successfully.";
} else {
    echo "File not found.";
}


Make sure to replace '/path/to/your/file.zip' with the actual path to the zip file you want to delete.


Note: Ensure that the script has the necessary write permissions to delete the file.
