Transfer files to server with publicly accessible zip file with extraction using PHP Copy and PHP ZipArchive. You just have to change the $remote_file_url and then upload this file on destination server and execute the file.
<?PHP
/**
* Transfer Files Server to Server using PHP Copy and PHP ZipArchive
* @link http://glowLogix.com
*/
/* Source File URL */
$remote_file_url = 'http://example.com/filename.zip';
/* New file name and path for this file */
$local_file = 'file.zip';
/* Copy the file from source url to server */
$copy = copy( $remote_file_url, $local_file );
/* Add notice for success/failure */
if( !$copy ) {
echo "Doh! Failed to copy $local_file\n";
}
else{
echo "WOOT! Success to copy $local_file...\n";
}
$zip = new ZipArchive;
$res = $zip->open('file.zip');
if ($res === TRUE) {
$path = getcwd() . "/backup/"; //getcwd will get the path of file
$zip->extractTo($path);
$zip->close();
echo '<br>Woot! File has been Extracted at: '.$path;
} else {
echo '<br>doh!';
}
?>
