    I can unzip uploaded files in file manager but can not figure out how to zip files for download. Is their a method for zipping files while they are on the server either in file manager or somewhere else? I use SmartFTP as my FTP program. Im a newbie so I need something not to complicated.

    Thanks

    In SSH its easy, i did 15GB in few hours to move a a/c.

    hi,
    if you can handle SSH, you can use
    Code:
    tar -czf foldername.tar.gz folder-tobe-zipped/

    see ya,

    Anything easier?
    Can I upload something to the server to handle this chore?
