To extract a zip file in Laravel, you can use the ZipArchive class provided by PHP.


Here is an example of how you can extract a zip file in Laravel:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
use ZipArchive;

// Open the zip file
$zip = new ZipArchive;
$res = $zip->open('path/to/zipfile.zip');
if ($res === TRUE) {
  // Extract the zip file
  $zip->extractTo('path/to/extract/to/');
  $zip->close();
  echo 'Zip file extracted successfully!';
} else {
  echo 'Error: Unable to extract zip file';
}


This example opens the zip file located at 'path/to/zipfile.zip' and extracts its contents to the directory 'path/to/extract/to/'. You can specify the path to the zip file and the directory to extract to as needed.


Note that you will need to include the ZipArchive class at the top of your file in order to use it.


I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.

In Laravel, you can use the built-in ZipArchive class to extract a zip file. Here are the steps to extract a zip file in Laravel:

  1. Add the use statement at the top of your file to import the ZipArchive class:
1
use ZipArchive;


  1. Instantiate a new ZipArchive object:
1
$zip = new ZipArchive;


  1. Open the zip file using the open() method. The method takes two arguments: the path to the zip file and the desired operation mode. For extracting, use ZipArchive::OPEN_READ mode:
1
2
3
if ($zip->open('path/to/your/zipfile.zip', ZipArchive::OPEN_READ) === true) {
    // Extraction logic
}


  1. Specify the path where you want to extract the zip files. For example, you can choose the current working directory:
1
$zip->extractTo(getcwd());


  1. Close the zip file with the close() method:
1
$zip->close();


Putting it all together, here's an example of extracting a zip file in Laravel:

 1

use ZipArchive;

$zip = new ZipArchive;

if ($zip->open('path/to/your/zipfile.zip', ZipArchive::OPEN_READ) === true) {
    $zip->extractTo(getcwd());
    $zip->close();
    echo 'Zip file extracted successfully.';
} else {
    echo 'Failed to extract the zip file.';
}


Make sure to replace 'path/to/your/zipfile.zip' with the actual path to your zip file.
