Required PHP extension not found: zip

Permalink 1 user found helpful

Have this error message when auto installing from Softaculous.
Any ideas on overcoming this, maybe downloading the package and installing onto the hosting diskspace directly? If so how?

It suggests that your web server does not have the php zip extension installed.

You can confirm this by using phpinfo - either as a directly installed php program or by installing my phpinfo addon from

(However, the zip issue may prevent that installing also!!)

You will probably be able to download a zipped package to your dev system, unzip, then upload all the files to the server packages dir by ftp.

I am from the Softaculous team.

It seems that zip extension is not loaded on your server. You will have to ask your web host to enable the zip extension as it is required by Concrete5
